Throughout March our photo banner will feature organizations, initiatives, and individuals supported by GIA member the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. The Commission provides leadership in cultural services for Los Angeles County, including information and comprehensive resources for the community, artists, educators, arts organizations, and municipalities. Below, in their own words, Commission staff reflect on past successes and future promises:
We all know that the past few years have been financially challenging for arts organizations. As we move into 2013, we're all encouraged by the fact that the California State budget is balanced. Budgetary projections for Los Angeles County are looking good, and the general rebound of the economy is sure to shape interesting opportunities for creative growth.
