Count the Gamut’s relocation as an achievement not just for the organization, but for the arts and the Harrisburg region itself.
Art matters from a financial, cultural vibrancy and economic growth perspective, and ultimately it affects the quality of life for those with access to it. It's the visceral impact of the arts that hits hard and lingers long: the way that an indelible image may worm its imprint into your eye and then mind and then dreams. The forlorn droop of a melody, and the sign of resignation from a local trumpet player's final note. The unbearably gorgeous and aching silence of the final scene of a film shot in our region. Every one of these offerings exists here in the midstate, and beats strong with art, and we must support it.
