More money for the arts, history

Email News Alerts

State and local arts initiatives will soon get a big funding boost.

Art, history and cultural initiatives expect to receive $93 million over the next two years as a result of a constitutional amendment passed last November that increased the statewide sales tax for outdoors and arts programs.


Arts supporters said that money will expand culture and history programs around the state, expose more children to museums and theatrical performances and support artists' work.
