Our Art Committee is working with several local, emerging artists to display their work on the walls of our building. We are interested in providing an opportunity for these artists to share their work with the public. It is a way in which we can provide a service to the community, and it is in line with the Society's mission, which includes promoting intellectual, philosophical, and artistic freedom.
