NATIONAL ART CENTERS
Look at that empty strip mall. Want to fill it to capacity? Let the NEA, National Endowment for the Arts, shift from giving grants to art groups, to setting up community art centers -places like this that are open to all artists in every major city - open to performers, artists, theater, lecturers, arts and crafts teachers and all the rest. Let traveling artists show, play, perform, lecture, on weekends, plus first come first serve, during the week for the cities own groups, shows, exhibits, etc. etc.
DONT demand million dollar architects - just move in and start bringing arts that are really open to all, back to the community.
