Arts Director Optimistic As Summer Season Gets Underway


The Legislative session is behind us, and the Summer Arts season is underway. 

The Vermont Arts Council's Executive Director Alex Aldrich says lawmakers showed their faith in the arts this session by increasing funding by 25 percent.

But Aldrich expresses concern that a change in Vermont's tax code could drive away wealthier residents and donors.

VPR's Neal Charnoff talks about these issues with Aldrich, who also gives us a few summer Art Hounds recommendations.
