Senator Serrano appeared as a special guest on NY1's “In Focus with Cheryl Wills." The Senator discussed the importance of arts education and diversity in the arts. As the Ranking Member of the New York State Senate Committee on Cultural Affairs, Tourism, Parks and Recreation, the Senator has been a longtime advocate for improving access to arts and culture, the arts as an economic engine, and increasing support for cultural organizations throughout the state.
"The arts are a critical part of New York City’s identity, and should be a vital source of educational and cultural enrichment for all of our residents. Discussions such as this help us chart the course for the future of the arts in our state, and outline how we can all work together to ensure that the arts and culture get the attention and support they deserve."
