“When I balance the arts with a governmental function, having a voice such as Triangle ArtWorks articulating not just the quality of life perspective but also the economic benefit, helps make the case for an active governmental role in the arts.”

Lyman Collins is the Cultural Arts Manager for the Town of Cary. His responsibilities include working with all of Cary’s municipal arts facilities, arts educational programs and performances, exhibitions, festivals, cultural organizations, grants program, public art, etc. If you participated in something artistic in Cary, odds are he had a hand in it.

Lyman has been instrumental in our receiving long term support and funding from the Town of Cary, along with being an active participant in many of Triangle ArtWorks’ programs and community engagement events.

Through its events, workshops and programs, Triangle ArtWorks provides opportunities for arts organizations throughout the Triangle to network and learn from each other. There aren’t that many forums for all art forms to come together for educational opportunities.

The new Cary Arts Center has multiple performance spaces, arts studios, classrooms, arts organization offices and more.

For us in Cary in particular, Triangle ArtWorks was instrumental in working with staff here for the First ArtsForce last spring, where all Cary cultural organizations had the opportunity to come together for a half-day workshop to learn from experts and each other to provide a solid foundation for future growth.”
