If you check the national statistics, I think you'll find that due to an economic phenomenon known as the 'multiplier effect' every dollar spent by the government on the arts returns $1.36 within 12 months. This is because of economic spinnoffs.
I wish more people had common sense like this. Thank you!
I don't see any spin offs from bad "so called" art being funded with public money. When I see some silly or ugly "art" I don't run out and spend a dime.
I do agree that corruption is a problem and who decides who gets funding should certainly be given an overhaul... but from the reading I've done even with corruption the govnt gets a huge return from the arts which goes back into the public fund.
I didn't realise that America has a government. In which part of America is it based, north, central, or south America, or one of the independent off shore islands.
Govt should support arts to ensure all can enjoy them, not just those with money.
We can enrich our lives without government digging into our pockets. Too much corruption.
