The Arts

Facet Co-Chairs: Lauren Robinson Kirk, Val Penn

The Link’s support of the arts began very early in the formation of the organization and was formally recognized as one of our facets in 1964 at the 14th National Assembly.

The GOAL of The Arts facet is to increase and expand art activity, and elevate our chapter programs through arts integration and effectively create an arts renaissance within our organization and programmatic efforts.

The Arts facet is supported nationally by all chapters through partnerships with galleries, museums, and art councils, educational and corporate entities, especially with programs that focus on artists of color. West Towns follows national and regional guidance and wholeheartedly endorses the Arts facet with diverse and culturally rich programs that educate minority youth.

Through our partnership with Lincoln Elementary school in Bellwood, the West Towns Links, Inc. Chapter advances the national goal of ensuring students have opportunities to participate in culturally rich activities across multiple disciplines.
