Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa http://publicradiotulsa.org en A Matter of Priorities: The City of Tulsa, Its Budget, and Its Arts Community http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/matter-priorities-city-tulsa-its-budget-and-its-arts-community <p>This has been an anxious past few months for many in Tulsa's arts community. That community was very much caught off-guard by the decision of Mayor Bartlett's office to eliminate most of the City of Tulsa's arts funding. Alarming proposals to cut staff positions at the Tulsa PAC Trust, the Waterworks Community Arts Center, and both the Heller and Clark Theatres effectively galvanized supporters all over town, and these supporters quickly spurred the City Council to oppose the Mayor's proposals.
