Note from the Executive Director

Thank you for your interest in Frisco Association for the Arts.  I’d love to get to know you and I invite you to partner with us as we advance the arts in Frisco.  As a musician and teacher, I believe exposure and involvement in the arts are essential to a healthy, balanced life.  Art gives us time to reflect, it inspires creativity, and it unites a community.  Each of us has a unique perspective, and when it is shared through the universal language of art, it has the power to change lives.  Music, dance, theatre, visual art, and the written word have all had a significant impact on history, and they compose the heart and soul of a city.  So whether you are a creator or consumer of art, I welcome you to the vibrant arts community in Frisco.  I’m looking forward to working together to further arts and culture in our growing city.  Let’s grab a cup of coffee soon!
