To the editor:

Salem's Artists' Row needs help from new talent this year and it should stand as a symbol for the collective power of art and creativity in this community.

It should be a place where people of all ages learn and participate in community art activities and a place where artists can demonstrate their processes.

Artists' Row could become an amazing place with more interest in the program.

In years past it has been a great disappointment, serving very few residents, while remaining focused on visitors to Salem.

The city just announced its "call for artists," and I'm hoping to see some better interest this year.
