NEA to the rescue:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on The Arts Announce Emergency Funding for Houston Arts Organizations Suffering Flood Damage</B><P>WASHINGTON and AUSTIN, Texas, June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) today announced a relief effort for arts organizations suffering flood damage in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Allison. The NEA has awarded TCA $30,000, the maximum amount allowed through a Chairman's special action grant, to be distributed through relief grants in southeast Texas. In addition, TCA will match the amount and will cover the administrative costs of the effort. Non- profit arts organizations in the relief area can apply to TCA for up to $10,000, to be used for technical assistance, to replace damaged equipment or to address other flood-related needs.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/010626/datu028.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

The gutsiness of the arts:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Flood Damages Texas Theatres</B><P>Michael King, Backstage.com<P>HOUSTON-"You can ruin our costumes, knock down our sets, but you can't destroy our play." That was the message Houston's Alley Theatre Artistic Director Gregory Boyd delivered to the company in the wake of the flood caused by tropical storm Allison during the weekend of June 9-10. Water entered the Alley through the downtown pedestrian tunnel system, submerging two basement-level floors. The flood caused extensive damage to the 296-seat Neuhaus Arena Stage, the costume, scene, and props departments, and rehearsal hall.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/bpibs/20010628/en/_b_h1_flood_damages_texas_theatres_h1_b__1.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>
