B of A: A Bank Where A Could Stand For Arts?

Charlotte-based Bank of America is taking over FleetBoston to create the second largest bank in America. That may be good news for the arts. “Bank of America has been ‘a real driving force behind the arts really coming front and center in the state, and particularly in Charlotte. It’s just offered the most incredible leadership – not just funding and resources, a lot of human resources, but just really understanding the importance of the arts. It’s in large part because of the bank’s leadership,’ that Charlotte regularly leads the nation in per capita arts spending.”
