Let's put art back in the conversation

By Jo-an Barnett

Dear Editor:

Regarding the front-page article in the Jan. 20 DCI on potential grant money for economic development and the article Jan. 21 in the Sentinel, "... how arts bleed into other businesses":

Should the City of Delta qualify for the economic development money in their transaction regarding truck route funding, it is hoped that leadership will include money to enhance arts and culture.

Delta has certainly done its part in the past with the murals, historic preservation, outdoor sculpture and the arts center; however, the interest has waned due to other priorities. Hopefully, the previous interest will be regained.
