A Historic Day for the Arts of California - and YOU made it happen!!
You called. You wrote letters. You let our lawmakers know that the arts matter to the people of California.
Today, with less that six hours to spare, Governor Brown approved the state budget that includes a one-time increase to the California Arts Council of $5 million. The first increase in ten years!
"We are honored to serve California's arts community, who so effectively mobilized to carry the message, locally and at the Capitol, that art works, in our schools and communities - enriching the lives of all Californians," said Wylie Aitken, Chair of the California Arts Council.
Bravo California - we did it!!
