Power of the Arts announces the launching of its new website.  Its goal is to help promote events of Power of the Arts members, allow for increased community participation, continue and increase our public advocacy for the arts, and to ramp up educational opportunities available to our members and those who live in the Valley.  We look forward to bringing to the Valley all the vibrant arts and culture opportunities it has to offer.
