CITY OF KATY (Covering Katy) – Fort Bend Charities, an organization founded by Fort Bend County Precinct 3 Commissioner Andy Meyers recently presented Katy Contemporary Arts Museum Director Ana Villaronga-Roman with a $2,500 donation. The check was presented by Meyers on Friday, November 18 when the commissioner attended the opening reception of “For the Love of Paper,” KCAM’s first international art exhibition showcasing the large works on paper by Mexican artist Alfredo Gisholt.

“Commissioner Meyers understands the importance of supporting the arts and Fort Bend County’s only art museum. He realizes the benefits the arts bring to the economic development of our area, the future of our community as well as the significance the arts have on our Children’s education,” said Villaronga-Roman. “Meyers has been supporting KCAM since it’s opening in 2013 and is the only elected official in our area to verbalize and commit to the importance of arts support,” she added.

Meyers founded the Literary Fine Arts Show and Parade almost at the same time as Villaronga-Roman founded the KCAM Contemporary Art Museum Fort Bend.

“Not every child will grow up to be an athlete. Some are born with innate artistic talents that must be fostered and strengthened, said Meyers. “Our community should recognize that and help support it. I urge others, residents and businesses as a whole, to consider giving to our many art organizations during this time. KCAM is there for us to enjoy, visit and learn. We owe them our thanks and support”.
