30 Jun Printing Is Only One Part of Arts Partnerships
Printing Partners maintains that arts organizations not only provide entertainment, but also enhance quality of life, educate children and broaden minds. A robust supporter of the arts, Printing Partners is a Level 4 sponsor of Nickel Plate Arts. Brian Miller is a senior account executive there and shares his insights and dream for the arts.
Miller: Printing Partners has partnerships with many types of outstanding arts organizations in Central Indiana. We specifically chose to partner with Nickle Plate Arts because of their unique audience and programs, and our shared desire to be active and responsible corporate citizens.
NPArts: How is your support of NPArts driven by a desire to make lasting changes in your community, not just today but into the future?
Miller: We are people who live, work and have families in Central Indiana. We believe that arts organizations not only provide entertainment, but also enhance our quality of life, educate our children and broaden our minds. In our support for the arts, it is our goal to make the lives of ourselves, our families and our community, even better.
NPArts: If you could snap your fingers and change something about the arts in your community or the world, what would you change and why?
Miller: I believe community appreciation for the arts starts with basic exposure. Unfortunately, when community budget cuts are required, arts programs are usually the first to be reduced. This is especially true in our schools. I’d personally like to see a little more balance in our communities on how we value arts programs versus athletic programs. I believe are both important for a community to thrive.

NPArts: How has your experience with the Nickel Plate Arts benefited Printing Partners?
Miller: We’ve received several tangible and intangible benefits working with Nickle Plate Arts. We’ve received unique exposure to showcase our capabilities and services to an entirely new audience that we would not have reached otherwise. We’ve also met several new clients and friends along the way, which makes the experience all worthwhile.
