“The arts center does not just bring culture, knowledge and a bigger worldview to us. It also brings the world to us, often introducing our community for the first time…The arts center and the film festival are turning our town into a destination (the Long Island Rail Road is even offering packages to the film festival). It puts us on the map, and that means people see the quality of life here, perhaps to come to live or to set up businesses.”
