The only thing we love more than this past glorious spring weekend are all the messages of support and guidance from today’s Arts Weekly. From the-not-surprising but still gratifying to hear statistic released by a new NEA report that says arts-based economic development has been shown to be responsible for more than 600,000 jobs and $67.5 billion in economic activity in rural communities to pros and CEOs dishing weekend tips for mastering a strong work week, our Reads section will give you fuel to stay motivated and centered. Get ready for Earth Day with Women of Culture’s conversation on art and the environment in Go, plus opportunities for museum educators, registrars, and more in Apply. Now off to a new week of getting after your goals and promise us, you’ll take a lunch outside if possible!
