Jeremy Abernathy breaks down the proposed cuts over on BurnAway, noting an important twist:
According to a budget reduction notice in an email sent on Thursday by Monica Prothro, project supervisor of the Contracts for Arts Services program, this doesn’t just mean less money for everyone. It means that funding will be limited to 30 organizations (not small groups, but primarily the big names), and funding for individual artists and community organizations will simply stop altogether. [Emphasis added]
Artists, arts advocates and art lovers have planned a rally at the Capitol to protest the 2012 budget and it's proposed cuts to arts funding. Full event details after the jump.
