Cuts in Michigan Arts Funding Likely
The Detroit Free Press reports that the Michigan Legislature sent a bill to Gov. Jennifer Granholm Tuesday to cut state funding for arts and culture grants by 17.5% -- much larger than the 4% reduction she had proposed. That means a loss of nearly $2 million to zoos, museums, symphonies, theater and dance companies, rural arts agencies, school residency programs and other grassroots arts initiatives in Michigan.
