For Art’s Sake!

It is really easy to include art as an afterthought with all the crazy crap going on with politics and the economy. We have seen some local non-profits go out of business and the bigger arts organizations are also watching the economy – (Star Tribune Story)

Many of us are feeling the crunch ourselves and I know myself I can’t really afford to give to any local art organizations or buy from local artists. I just hope people can hang on until this crisis is over so afterward we can get back to business and start supporting the scene again.

In the meantime I do try to get out and support the scene by attending events and getting the word out. I have found these websites to be a good way to find out about what is going on locally and cool things to check out.
