While you’re at the VAC, don’t forget to join the conversation!

Through April of 2023, we’re measuring the impact of non-profit arts and cultural institutions in Lincoln County, as part of Americans for the Arts’ Arts & Economic Prosperity Study 6—the nation’s largest, most comprehensive study of the Arts & Culture sector…and you can help! When you attend this event, please complete an “AEP6” survey before you leave the building (and every time you attend an event or exhibit at the VAC). 3 minutes, 13 questions, totally anonymous. Look for the iPad located in the lobby, or ask a volunteer or staff member for a paper copy.
