Slashed arts funding in NY

February 5, 2009

Chad Post at Three Percent has written several times recently about the precarious position of arts funding during a time of deep financial crisis, and today he announces sad news about state funding for the arts in New York.  As we’ve discovered here at Iowa of late, as well, it is always likely to be the smallest and most vulnerable programs that are hit hardest in an economic crunch, whatever the intentions of the people making funding decisions, as there’s nothing to cushion the blow. I hope that what has seemed to be increased interest in translation will help counteract some of the crippling effects of drastically reduced funding.
