ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ELK GROVE, CA - Elk Grove and surrounding communities have been overlooked and under-appreciated when it comes to a regional theater and community arts center.

The need for the American Renaissance Institute of Arts is staggering, as community members thirst for arts education and performances ranging from ballet to musicals to theater to orchestral, jazz and ensemble-like performances. The research shows that nothing of this kind has been proposed, or even thought of in the private sector.

This venture was conceived from the ground-up to be self-sustaining, year in and year out without having to depend on money from rich patrons of the arts, without the need for grants, loans or angel investors.
