“The arts are not a frill. The arts are a response to our individuality and our nature, and help to shape our identity.
What is there that can transcend deep difference and stubborn divisions? The arts. They have a wonderful
universality. Art has the potential to unify. It can speak in many languages without a translator. The arts do not
discriminate. The arts can lift us up.”

–Former Texas Congresswoman Barbara Jordan
