Governor’s vetos affect the arts in Juneau

Please read this ASCA Press Release from the Alaska State Council on the Arts, whose budget has been eliminated by Governor Dunleavy.

The Juneau Arts and Humanities Council is just one of many local arts agencies that will lose grant funding because of this veto. Our Artists in the Schools program ($15,000) and the Poetry Out Loud program ($10,000) are funded directly by grants from ASCA, and we receive a little over $14,000 in operating costs in grant funding from the Council.
