Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!

Support the arts!

Joyce Kulhawik gave a great speech last night at The Thalia fundraiser on the importance and power of the arts. She’s so right. And yet something so vital to thought and creativity and community is perpetually underfunded. I mean, we naturally assume “starving” precedes “artist”. Here in Massachusetts the governor recently announced that he’s going to slash the arts funding budget by more than half, back to where it was 20 years ago.

So, please support your local arts scene, especially the smaller and fringe artists. Donate, go to shows, buy artworks, &c. If you can’t support artist with your dollars, do so with your voice. Spread the word about events, tell your friends about your favorite artists’ projects, actively seek out new artists, &c.
