The ArcWorks Community Art Center, a hub for the creative in our community, has issued a Call for Artists for their upcoming ''You Got to Have Friends'' exhibit exploring who and what we hold precious as friends.

Theme: How do you define friend? What are friends? Who or what is it that helps you get through the day, the week, the month or even the year?  We ask artists to explore the essence of what a friend is and does. Feel free to interpret this theme widely. The meaning of friend has deep connections throughout history, culturally, and is tested by experience.
