It's official, the city of San Bernardino has a new arts center! The building, which originally began as a cultural arts center in 1935 has come full circle.

The success of a society should not be judged, nor should it depend, solely on how well the cogs in the machine are running but instead on the amount of creativity, ingenuity, and dedication of its citizens. It is through the arts, and literature, that we can gauge how well those cogs are running and what needs to change to make the machine run better, or to abandon the machine altogether and start anew. This is true in every society, and in every city. Yes, even in San Bernardino.

In case you hadn’t noticed, we are in a recession, or at least were in recession. Art would seem superfluous, a luxury almost, in times like these, but when I sat down to speak with Dorothy and Ernest Garcia about the years that they have dedicated to arts and literature in San Bernardino, they encouraged a different perspective.
