Arts center needed

What a lovely picture of the new art center in Granite City — the Alfresco.

Lebanon has the Looking Glass Playhouse. I think it’s time for Belleville to jump on the bandwagon and have a performing arts center as well. We have several talented, amateur theater groups as well as dance troupes and musicians that need a place to perform rather than in the local school gymnasiums.

Let’s show people that we are as sophisticated and supportive as other smaller communities.
