We are grateful to the business community in Bend that believes in the power of the arts to enhance our community. Support us and know your contribution means more exposure for your business as well as a contribution toward making Bend a wonderful culturally diverse place to live, work, and visit.

“The arts empower. The arts give a voice to the voiceless. The arts help transform American communities and, as I often say, the result can be a better child, a better town, a better nation, and certainly a better world. Let’s champion our arts action heroes, emulate them and make our communities everything we want them to be.”

– Robert L. Lynch, President, Americans for the Arts
