Quick look at the Kansas City art world from a financial perspective . . .

"We get behind the numbers of public funding — how much comes from taxpayers, and how much goes back to the state governments from art — as we look at everything from First Fridays to the Office of Culture and Creative Services."

Yea I've heard all of that pablum before.If the arts can't pay it's own way then it is another stone around non participants necks. If you want to dance or see art or read a book. PAY FOR IT WITH A CHARGE TO THE USER.
If it is good art or good dance then it will be successful at providing the same level of economic return. Subsidized events, subsidized buildings, subsidized entertainment STEALS from non participants. Stealing is wrong regardless of what you call it. Patronage should never be provided by government. The means of production and the means of distribution in the same hands is known as WHAT?
