ArtSpring Newsletter August 17, 2020

Dear Friends,

“Be kind, be calm and be safe.” Such a wonderful reminder from Dr. Henry of what is important. I like to think it will remain with us once we get through all of this. The connections we make in the world and the kindness we show each other make for a better community. But we are all only human, sometimes even I get a little grumpy, so show yourself some kindness too.

With our Covid Safety plan in place we are looking forward to a gradual reopening. Our season opening announcement comes next week. We are so excited!

Be part of ArtSpring. Renew or purchase your ArtSpring membership before the end of August and receive 5% off of ArtSpring Presents tickets for the 2020-21 season.

With all best wishes,
Cicela Månsson
Executive & Artistic Director, ArtSpring
