The Superior Experience... connecting our town
Art is more than just self-expression and self communication; it allows us to escape and leave behind the stress of the our overly busy lives. … Art plays a role in our community because it helps define us and makes us better.
CAPS is working hard to define the Superior Experience. We want every developer, every business owner and home builder to think about ways to incorporate art and creativity into their proposals and plans.
