“What others often don’t understand about people who grew up in Venice during the late 70’s was that, in Venice, you had to be tough; hold your own on the street”

Meta Zimmerman

“You are turning being a member of our town into an art. I can’t wait to see the progress and participate in BELONGING. This is one of my favorite ways of belonging here!!

What an experience it all was living out the theme of I AM HERe, then sharing with our community through our exhibit. I feel truly grateful to Ruth for her vision and to each artist for what she brought to this journey.
