Don’t Be So Snooty, Small Towns Have Museums and Performing Arts, Too
But I thought then, as many of us do, that performing arts venues and museums were mostly located in big cities. I moved back to Turlock for the position as the city’s arts facilitator managing the Carnegie Arts Center, after more than 15 years of experience in some of those “big city” museums, to prove that’s not true. The greatest motivator for my decision was the potential for real impact. I craved direct involvement in the planning and implementation of programs for a community that I could connect with. Here in Turlock, I wanted to bring the arts alive through direct contact with patrons and neighbors.
