New Valley 207
Art for Our Sake

With the budget of the California Arts Council slashed from $18 million to less than $2 million, the Golden State now ranks 50th -- the lowest in the nation -- on per capita arts spending.

Many regard the arts as simply a luxury to be enjoyed when other priorities have been met. But studies show that the arts are a powerful economic engine -- and many Valley communities now see creativity as the key to prosperity.

In this New Valley, we'll visit Fresno, where a consortium of artisans and businesspeople are working together to build a "creative community" to lure talent from around the country. We'll travel to Tulare County, where an innovative murals project is drawing accolades - and tourist dollars. And we'll see the vital role arts play in educating our children.

Join us for New Valley: Art for Our Sake!
