Supporting the arts

I would like to clear up some confusion: The Lodi Art Center and Lodi Arts Commission are two separate and very different groups.

The Lodi Art Center, or Lodi Community Art Center, is a local nonprofit group which has been in existence for over 65 years. It is a group whose members are artists or supporters of art in the community. The Art Center has received grant money from the city of Lodi, but is not run by or otherwise affiliated with the city of Lodi.

The Lodi Arts Commission is a city of Lodi department.

It would be wonderful if the city would manage to find a space for this group, which has contributed so much to the local arts community. The Lodi Art Center is responsible for keeping the Lodi Art Hop going, for providing a yearly regional art show at Woodbridge Winery with exceptional art and supporting our local high school students with a place to show their artwork, and also with college scholarships.

I would like to invite the city to rethink its commitment to this art group. Of course, the Art Center is appreciative of the grant funds it has received in recent years, but a home for the Art Center is the crucial need. Can someone provide this organization with a home?

Please, support your local arts, artists and community art center!
