we have heard authors remark, "I only truly know

myself when I am writing." The arts speak to our most honest selves,
whether it is through words, movement, a lens, a brush, or simply
our hands. The arts express our dreams, our fears, our hopes, and
our humanity.
West Chester, with a historical tradition of valuing and cultivating
the arts, is notably abundant with creatives. We are building
Uptown Alliance to house musical and theatrical performances.
We have our own theatre company and Shakespeare in our local
parks. West Chester University's College of Arts and Humanities
continues to grow and flourish, flooding our town with up
and coming talent.

Find out more
on page 36!

As the arts grow in West Chester, so does Fig. We
enthusiastically welcome Bri Carlisle to our amazing team
of community connectors and creators. Bri, with a gift for
and love of photography, brings to Fig a passion for community
building and small business development, as well asan impressive
marketing background.
In this issue, we present a book of artists, makers, and creatives
who have made West Chester their home-nationally recognized
talent that inspires our local community and beyond. Matthew
Perko, a local West Chester high school student,
graces our cover with his unparalleled physical
abilities and our town with his kind spirit.
This fall, we encourage you to pick up a brush,
attend a performance, or buy a piece of art.
Find your passion and inspire your creative
spirit right here in West Chester.
