San Diego is Awesome!
Art should matter. That’s the reason we do what we do; we want to make sure that Culture (with a capital “C”) remains, and gains the prominence it deserves in America’s Finest City. The benefits of art and culture have been studied and quantified countless times but what all of that data fails to accurately represent is the spiritual and emotional impact art can have on an individual life, or the wellbeing of an entire city. Do you think the identities of New Yorkers or Chicagoans aren’t inextricably tied to the rich cultural heritage that lies at the core of their metropolises? If the destruction of Palmyra and the devotion of its stalwart protector can teach us anything its that culture—our culture—is essential enough to our lives and our identities that it is deserving of our deepest devotion and worthy of fighting for. Help us fight. If there is something deserving of our attention, bring it to us.
