I enjoyed the video documentary short about USES and the Community Colors exhibit very much. I am glad the young folks from this Intercultural Communications course directed their energies and lens on this vital community resource and the important arts programming that consistently takes place there which enriches the community and our lives. The care in production and post-production is apparent. The message and highlighting the art and artists that makes community is very much appreciated. GOOD JOB!
