Los Angeles Mayor wants more arts, less subsidymain
Some very odd statements from Mayor Eric Garcetti.
‘Los Angeles can do a better job promoting the arts than by subsidizing them,’ he said. Followed by: ‘We have a tremendous amount of wealth in the city that’s waiting to be asked in the right way.’ Hmmm…
City spending on arts, Mike Boehm points out, is currently $8.96 million a year, down 38.5% in real terms over the past decade.
Slipped Disc will be there next month. Happy to help change the Mayor’s pre-sets.
