A great opportunity

Dear Editor:

As an Aspen resident for the past 41 years and a very close neighbor of the proposed new Aspen Art Museum, I urge everyone to join me in voting yes on ballot Question 1 on May 5.

The arts are such a vital element of our lives in Aspen. Now is the time to take this opportunity to finally construct a permanent home for our own art museum much closer to downtown.

The most important point about this entire project is that it is 100 percent privately funded! No tax dollars are being requested to make this new art museum happen.

In these difficult times we must take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself to better ourselves as a community. Unfortunately, in the time that I have been here, I have seen so many of these wonderful projects fall by the wayside.

I urge you to vote yes on the question of the art museum. Please, let’s not let this opportunity pass us by.

Terry Butler
