Keep in Touch with ABQ Arts with State of the Arts newsletter

As part of the mission of the Arts Alliance to be a provider of information about the arts and culture industry in Albuquerque, the organization started a twice monthly enewsletter called State of the Arts. It's put together by yours truly, and it's gotten good feedback. There are always several local stories, as well as trends about the art and culture industries regionally and nationally.

You, too, can sign up for it, by going to the Arts Alliance website And the AA is looking for advertisers for it. Right now, the list has over 2000 people on it, with a better than 50% open rate.

Here's a sample from this week's edition. (Excuse the appearance below - I'm a writer, not an html expert, and the newsletter itself looks great)

Kennedy Center Wants To Help You
The Kennedy Center wants to help arts groups around the country. They're offering up their management and fundraising expertise. "Arts In Crisis: A Kennedy Center Initiative" is a high-tech support service through which arts administrators can talk to the center's personnel about challenges of shrinking income, budget-conscious audiences and other difficulties in keeping the doors opens.

Bosque Chamber Society Halting Ops
As reported by in the Sunday, February 15, 2009 Albuquerque Journal, the Bosque Chamber Music Society is shutting down because of declining income. The BCMS's budget was only $12,000 a year and only half of it came from donations, but even that much is hard to come by these days.

More Debate on a Secretary of Culture
Americans for the Arts president and CEO Robert Lynch is among those who have championed a cabinet level position to "connect the dots" in the federal government's arts and culture infrastructure.

There is lots more in the newsletter, but you've got to sign up to get it.
