“Our human existence is a paradox; on one hand there is much beauty to nourish our soul, on the other hand there is much hardship, even suffering to endure. Amazingly, the universe has given us a life raft of incredibly high spirit that helps remind us that if we hold our light, even as small as a metaphorical candle flame in our heart, we can survive and eventually thrive. That life raft is…the Arts.
The long success of the Rialto Center for the Arts is based on the foundation of “Holding the Light,” the Arts, as a beacon of life-inspiring encouragement for our Atlanta community. Here, our amazing and diverse community unites to experience the spiritual effects of a wide variety of the Arts; soul-moving instrumental and vocal music in all genres, incredible dance from around the world, uplifting spoken word from wonderful authors and poets, and on and on.
We welcome and encourage you to subscribe to our seasonal offerings of enriching presentations. In your own life journeys, in which you will need the spirit-filled effects of all the Arts, we invite you to experience a highly spiritual benefit, the unifying power of “Holding your Light” together with us here at The Rialto! Welcome to the Rialto Lighthouse!”
