“I want to encourage everyone in the community to take advantage of Arts in 3D and embrace the spirit of this program,” said Dorsey. “I was not elected to maintain the status quo; I was elected to make visible and impactful changes. This Partnership not only does that, it will add to vibrancy of this diverse and engaged community.”
