Bad news for the arts.

Funding for the Virginia Commission for the Arts is due to be cut by 50%, and eliminated altogether in another year.
More information on this can be found here.

This is going to hit our museums. With a sledge hammer. William King museum up the hill already needs a serious makeover, and I can’t even imagine what they would do if their funding goes down further.

So.. if you’re a Virginian and you care about the arts (or, hell, if you're not a Virginian, and want to pretend that you are), badger our representatives. NOW.

(I know that I sure as hell have.)
