This past week, with a post on its Facebook page, the Highland Community Foundation announced the launch of a new art-based project. The project, “Highland Has Art”, is aimed at assisting and promoting the arts and art-related projects in the Town of Highland. As part of the new program the Foundation pledges a commitment of $500, which they will look to supplement through a fundraising campaign of direct solicitation, future fundraising events and solicitation of online contributions.
“In the recent debate over the Town Theatre project, a couple of things were very apparent,” said HCF President Lance Ryskamp. “First, there is an art community in our town, which needs to be showcased and supported. And second, many supporters of the Town Theatre project were very impressed at the enthusiasm of the Highland students who showed their support.”
