New Hampshire and the arts, a quick opinion

I looked into grants a few months back, to discover the state is not offering any individual artist grants this year. But the state seems to now be realizing that art is a valuable component for economic growth and development.

And, as a Los Angeles ex-patriot, I know that to be very true. When the galleries and studios moved into the old garment district in downtown, the area totally turned around. What had once been an area where it was well-advised for a woman to never be alone, turned into an interesting, trendy area with an edge. The same thing has been happening in New York City for decades, as well.

Hopefully, they can find the nickels to help perpetuate that growth! Revitalization depends on it!!
