The Arts facet encourages art appreciation representing the African Diaspora and programs that relate to African cultural heritage. Our chapter has a tradition of supporting the performing, visual, literary, and creative arts. The goal of the Arts facet is to increase and expand art activities throughout our chapter service areas of Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The Links, Incorporated creates and supports art-related educational opportunities for youth and professional artists in various visual and performing arts disciplines. A vital component of the Arts facet programming is the Links Incorporated National Initiative, Classics Through the Ages, and the National Arts Contest.
