About ACE

A Thing Of Beauty...

ACE brings together art, education, business and community resources to create meaningful works of art for permanent public display. This "partnership" nurtures community spirit. People of all ages and interests are invited to participate. The result of their cooperative endeavor is a beautiful, long-lasting piece of art created by the community, for the community.

...Is A Lamp
An ACE project shows what is important to a community; it helps illuminate the shared values the community deems important. A typical ACE project promotes:

  • stewardship (recycling)
  • civic responsibility (pride in community)
  • cooperative problem-solving (through brainstorming and the practical application of ideas)
  • private sector support of community (for-profit strengthening non-profit)

ACE projects use art to kindle community spirit and tap community spirit to vitalize art.

...Is A Mirror
An ACE project reflects what a community is, of how it can work together for common goals. An ACE project provides a model that can be mirrored to solve other civic and personal issues.An ACE project is an occasion for people to work together non-competitively to literally create something from nothing. Proceeding with respect for differing opinions, compromises must be reached, not at the cost of the quality of the finished project, but compromise that creates synergy -- creating something better than any individual in the group could create alone.An ACE project is a display of CREATIVITY and BRAIN POWER in a positive and beautiful way.

...Is A Joy Forever!
"A thing of beauty is a joy forever!" An ACE project can help you define and display what you and your neighbors agree is the heart of your community. If that’s a legacy you feel is important to your community, school or civic organization, e-mail ACE at Rikn@ArtsEnrich.com, phone 509 362-5296, or send your inquiry to P.O. Box 161, Marshall, WA 99020.You will never have seen anything like the art work you will create...and yet, it will be beautiful, it will be meaningful, it will be you!
