who needs art?

According to Jeff Mapes of The Oregonian, the Oregon Legislature today passed the " $855 million rebalancing plan." This plan includes taking "$1.8 million out of the Oregon Cultural Trust's account to help balance the budget." This money was generated from sale of the Culture license plates.

Shame on them.

  1. this simply infuriates me. and if another non-art-related trust was being misappropriated like this, i'd still be mad.
