From area universities to major cities and even small towns...we are so lucky to have such incredible venues that inspire cultural growth and awareness!!!

Some of these venues you have heard about forever...but have you been in them...recently...or at all?  Some are part of small towns but sit on a regional...national...and many on an international stage...all within a short drive of wherever you may be in the CRV.

Well we celebrate them...and try and bring their perspective and mission to life.  If it is a painting...an old ship..an artifact...well nothing beats seeing them and gaining a vibe about them by sharing their space...so visiting is always the best way to feed off of that energy....but on our air...you can hear the stories...you can hear the passion from the gallery or exhibit stewards...be part of it!
