LA’s Dept. Of Cultural Affairs Shrinks As Jobs Fall Away

“Additional layoffs and early retirements loom over a department that expects staffing to fall from 63 last summer to 36 by July 1. The $9.6-million Cultural Affairs budget already had been trimmed by $700,000 through furloughs and unfilled openings.” The city also wants to unload some of its neighborhood arts centers on private operators.
