Congressman Peters: We Need to Embrace Art
He visited Paint a Miracle, the art studio in downtown Rochester that recently received a state grant for clay projects.
Art is one of the most basic forms of self-expression and, in some cases, an outlet to discover your full potential and artistic style.
That's what Congressman Gary Peters found on Monday when he visited Paint a Miracle, a Rochester art studio that helps people who are living with disabilities.
Peters, the Democrat who represents Rochester and Rochester Hills, visited with artists at the studio, which recently received a state grant to allow the artists to work with clay.
“It was great to be here to see the folks working with art and pottery,” Peters said. “It’s so important to their therapy to bring out artistic talents and creativity that people have inside of them.”
