Evening Light on Cinque Terre at Dusk by Michael D Lenihan

Now more than ever, ART must be celebrated!  ART challenges us to look at the world with a different perspective, and moves us from curiosity to understanding to empathy.  Georgia O’Keefe once said “To create one's own world in any of the arts takes courage.”  Please join us as we celebrate the thousands of people that are touched by EAC each year in a memorable evening of gratitude for art, food, music and community.
