Arts advocacy alert

Today is the annual Arts Day at the Capitol. For information on how you can participate, go to

and click on the links.

Now more than ever our voices need to be heard as the budget slashers eye the arts as a taxpayer-pleasing target to cut. Get out and tell them exactly why that is wrong, wrong, wrong!

The arts are an engine for local and statewide economies; have already been cut and cut and cut in the last couple of decades when times were good and other programs got more and more and more; and we need SOMETHING to feel good about, now, don't we?!?!?
