Leadership in the Arts

Is there an arts crisis in America today? A panel of leading arts advocates and decision makers examine questions including: Who or what is defining American Arts today? What are the critical issues and challenges, especially in funding, and how do various art forms compare in their vitality? What are the roles of the varied players — arts-world leaders, corporate leaders, political leaders — in sustaining, reinvigorating, and even rescuing the arts in America?

Festival: 2007
