Why the Arts Mean Business

Kate Marquez
Executive Director, Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance

SAACA began as the Oro Valley Arts Advisory Board in 1997 and the organizations’s

As the local and international business climate has changed, the arts have
been found to help businesses thrive and businesses help
the arts to build community.
