LA City council decides against Measure 56, Dept of Cultural Affairs safe.

The LA Times is reporting that the LA City council has defeated Measure 56 that would have eliminated funding for the Department of Cultural Affairs.  Why?  Simply because the local art community raised it voice and was heard by the council.

“This is the first time the arts community was able to mobilize in such an effective way,” said Danielle Brazell, executive director of the arts advocacy group Arts for L.A. “The arts locked arms and we were one community, and that’s extraordinary.”

Thank you all who helped out.
