Creativity lies within each of us.  Whether it be as a photographer, a filmmaker, a quilter, a painter, a poet, a dancer, or a musician, the essence of our humanity unfolds when we unlock that special power. 

Exploring our creative side expands our view of the world. It makes our existence more meaningful, richer, and deeper.  We find the life that surrounds us more beautiful to see and enjoy. 

Featured Artist: Alex Nyerges, Director of the VMFA
