Painters, writers and musicians have moved here, attracted by the support for the arts from both the city and the community. But that support isn’t widely reflected in city and county middle and high schools.</p> Tue, 07 Jan 2014 16:44:32 +0000 Richard Winham 32169 at http://wutc.org 'Let Beauty Awaken' Project Releases CD to Fund Local Arts Education http://wutc.org/post/let-beauty-awaken-project-releases-cd-fund-local-arts-education <p> <a href="http://letbeautyawaken.com/about/">Let Beauty Awaken</a> is an initiative spearheaded by four local high school students. The idea originated with Thomas West. Thomas, a senior at McCallie, is a singer. After performing on the NPR show, <em>From The Top,</em> he performed at a local public school. While he was there he became painfully aware of the lack of funding for the arts and music in local public schools and determined then and there to do something about it.
