Funding of the Arts

The next meeting of the Society will be a panel discussion on the funding of the arts, featuring four people who approach the subject from different backgrounds: Fred Fine, Commissioner, City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs; Morton H. Kaplan, Chairman of the Illinois Alliance for the Arts; Jerry Peart, Sculptor; and Jessie A. Woods, formerly a member of the National Council on the Arts, the advisory board of the National Endowment for the Arts. Jack Guthman will act as moderator. The panel will review such diverse issues as the future of public expenditures for the arts, the interaction between the community and funding sources, the effect of public funding on the nature of the art created and similar timely questions.
