On a good note, here are the Bay Area NEA grant recipients in this round of grants.

2003 NEA grants top $66 million
$4.6 million to be shared by state groups

Jesse Hamlin, Chronicle Staff Writer

The National Endowment for the Arts will hand out $66 million to arts groups across the nation in its second and biggest round of grants for fiscal year 2003.

Of the grants just announced, about $4.6 million will be divvied up among 120 California organizations, with the California Arts Council receiving $962, 000 and 53 Bay Area groups splitting $1.7 million. They range from Berkeley's Aurora Theatre Company, which got $6,000 to support its family theater program,
to the San Francisco Symphony, which received $200,000 for a public TV series featuring Michael Tilson Thomas and the orchestra.

MANY FEAR THEY WOULD HAVE TO COMPETE WITH VITAL CITY SERVICES; COMMISSION TO WEIGH IN

The majority of San Jose arts groups are frowning upon a proposal from the mayor that offers them the option of a potentially more stable city funding source than they have had during the current economic downturn. <a href=http://www.bayarea.com/mld/mercurynews/6516601.htm target=_blank>more</a>

With a new mayor we get new policies and practices. Mr. Newsome is sworn in on Thursday. Should be interesting...From the SF Chronicle.

Quote:
Gavin Newsom says he's crazy about art -- but time will tell if he can transcend wonkishness to usher in a shining renaissance of the arts in San Francisco

Steven Winn, Chronicle Arts and Culture Critic

When Gavin Newsom spent a semester in Italy during his junior year in college, he fell in love with pre-Renaissance art. Sure, he appreciated the Renaissance masterpieces, San Francisco's mayor-elect said the other day, "the Baroque and Rococo less so." What excited the young Newsom most, in 14th century works by Duccio, Giotto and others, were the early stirrings of perspective in Western art, the quest to represent three dimensions on a two- dimensional plane. "I was fascinated with that incredible shift in thinking."

As Newsom takes center stage in City Hall with his swearing in Thursday, San Francisco's panoramic arts world awaits the new perspectives and conceptual shifts that may come with a new mayoral administration. Fingers are crossed -- with some eyes skeptically rolling at the idea -- that a kind of arts renaissance could be in the works for San Francisco in 2004 and beyond.
