Thank you @toledo_opera for exposing our young people to #opera ! Your preview of #romeoandjuliet with a diverse cast before a diverse young audience at @toledolibrary Mott Branch was everything! The fact that the young attendees selected a more positive ending where Juliet doesn’t drink the poison speaks volumes! Our children want a brighter future ... Exposure to the arts is vital! #supportthearts#opera#romeoandjuliet#librariesrock#RhondaHasSpoken

Over the weekend I had a great time touring lofts in Downtown Winchester. I even managed to find an art piece that will look great in my office once elected as your senator on November 6th. #SupportTheArts#LetGrayLeadTheWay

JD doesn’t believe he is turning something ugly beautiful, but rather that he is merely painting beauty itself. “You are this beautiful, I’ve merely changed the background.”
Backstage view of rehearsal for The Addams Family, opening in just three weeks. Remember season ticket holders get to reserve seats in advance - and if you don’t have your season ticket yet, it’s not too late to buy one. #theatre#livetheatre#communitytheatre#supportthearts
Dispatch from managing editor Leah: “What a lovely night of art and community at the members preview and reception for ‘New Beginnings: An American Story of Romantics and Modernists in the West’ at @smowest! I wrote about SMoW’s conception four years ago, when it was still a construction site, so it was especially gratifying to see the beautiful museum it has become. And I couldn’t resist poking into other exhibitions while I was there - love the interactive hitching knot display. Visit the museum to see more paintings and photographs from the iconic Taos Pueblo!” #SMoWmoments#SMoW#newbeginnings#tiacollectionsantafe#mediainvite#historicnewmexicanart#smowest#oldtownscottsdale#supportthearts
There is endless inspiration inside the historic Carousel house. It is so wonderful to be surrounded by so many colors and textures. It’s amazing seeing what artists can do, given the space and inspiration. We can’t wait to see art make more art.

There are a whole lot of things that cause me joy in this world, but two of my favorites are teaching (anything) and making dance. First day setting work on RBR’s dancers was filled with joy x 2. Grateful to do what others did for me a long time ago. #highschooldance#keepartinschools#supportthearts
This is fantastic piece of art created by live event painter and artist @jamiegopaint during the Sweethearts & Patriots 2015 Gala!! Check out her page, her work is AMAZING!!! 💫 #flashback 💫 @sweethearts1776 ❤️❤️❤️ This was the dance floor where attendees danced to live #music from a 15-piece jazz orchestra!!

Thanks to my old educators for inviting me to give a speech this weekend about artistic expression, storytelling, and The Butter Knife. Education is a gift I do not take for granted: it taught me how to seek inspiration & mentorship in unexpected places. Everything I’ve learned in life has essentially been from people. I may not remember all the philosophy, theory, novels, and plays, but I remember how my teachers engaged with them, what they felt about them, and the music they played as I entered classrooms.
Asking for help in this industry can be incredibly difficult for me and often times, I feel “younger” than the teenagers I addressed, even when I’m acting like a jaded middle-aged creature. But I must remind myself: it’s okay to learn. Life is measured by your vast network of relationships that occupy their moments at different times. I’d be nothing without the cool, provocative people who get me & guide me when I’d sometimes rather hide & eat guacamole.
The Harvest Supper was a fantastic way to spend a snowy Colorado Sunday!! Thank you so much to @masonjarevents for having me. I loved the atmosphere and everything was beautiful 🙌. @irieweddingsandevents ...great to see you again and thanks for my beautiful flowers 🙏🏼...hey @helgawyatt I found your friend, Becca and she says HI!! 😉 #fall2018#luxcannabis
