A recap from the SF Chronicle.

The arts matter - and so does drawing crowds
Steven Winn

Thursday, June 2, 2005

The arts are essential, everyone seems to agree. Seventy percent of Californians say artists make for a better community. The state mandates the arts as a "core subject" in public schools. San Francisco arts organizations, with an aggregate budget of $350 million, attract more patrons in a year here than all sporting events do. So why is it getting harder and harder to pay the bills?

Last week, in an early morning forum at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, a group of fretting Bay Area arts administrators gathered to discuss their collective plight. The meeting's title, "Why Business Should Be Concerned About Arts & Culture in the Bay Area..." posed a wishful, unfinished thesis. The ellipses, at the end of the line, captured an air of what-next uncertainty. Should business be concerned?
