#POMO ARTISTS FINE ART
"Painting is another way of keeping a diary."
You might be wondering what exactly the arts does for a community? From local galleries to life-size wall murals, a community full of art and artists is a community full of culture. Public art reflects a community and its surroundings working to cultivate a cultural identity by setting a community apart and attracting people to its uniqueness. Artwork helps express a community's values and creates an elevated sense of awareness for community members and visitors. Research has even shown that cities that emphasize art have more civic and social engagement, better child welfare and even lower poverty rates.
