The next rising star

Dear Editor:

My wife and I are members from far away, and this is written as “Gramps” ” our 5-year-old grandson was proudly displayed on the walls of the Aspen Art Museum at the Valley Kids Art Show.

I’m actively involved with several art museums. Each of them, albeit in different ways, understands the importance of connecting with the community. Support of local artists and exhibits of schoolchildren are part of that outreach.

No doubt you could fill that time slot with another outstanding internationally acclaimed rising star. On the other hand, it’s possible you’ll encourage a future rising star by continuing to show local children’s art.

By continuing to advocate and to show school art, I’d guess your own star would rise in the Roaring Fork Valley.
