Can Colorado Arts Council Survive?

Now that the Colorado Arts Council has seen its budget cut to $40,000 and its director fired, can it survive? “The council, a key player in the state arts community for 36 years, is barely hanging on. In order to survive, it must learn to get by with volunteers and donations from new sources. But the council also needs a commitment from [Governor Bill] Owens and other state leaders that they will support it and increase its funding when the economy turns around.”
