From Barry’s Blog:
The San Francisco Arts Commission mess. I am following very closely the continuing saga of the SF Arts Commission Cultural Equity Grants Program – what was purportedly a scandal, but is becoming more of a mishandled bureaucratic SNAFU. An important meeting for Monday, December 5th. Whatever happens this one potentially has all the hallmarks of a real soap opera drama. See Arlene Goldbard’s blog.
