Do you like this story?
CIB (Capital Improvement Board) voted last week to suspend, kill, squash, withdraw funding to the arts and tourism budget. Read more of the details in this Indy Star article. This just a couple weeks after our Culture Matters Rally where the Mayor decided to speak about how important the arts were to the growth of the city and its residents. Flop. Times and the economy are tough. We all understand this and I think we all expected some budget cuts and I very much remember the debates we hashed out here and at the Save Indy Arts blog several months ago, but this decision is ridiculous in my opinion.
