State arts councils and agencies across the country are watching to see if  the Kansas Arts Commission will be eliminated as a state agency.  As states and municipalities across the country wrestle with budgets, a crisis in arts funding is occurring not only at the state and local levels, but in federal agencies as well.

 

In light of this Wednesday's full Senate vote on the resolution opposing Governor Brownback's executive reorganization order eliminating the Kansas Arts Commission the Arts Council is holding a Special Arts & Issues Meeting!  Llewellen Crain, Executive Director for the Kansas Arts Commission and Harlan Brownlee, President and CEO for the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City will present the issues and well as detail specific calls for action.

 

Visit www.CentralExchange.org to register on-line or call 816-471-7560.

 

The Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City strengthens and enriches the community by growing appreciation, participation and support for the arts.
