Sustaining the Arts

Little Rock must develop a long-term plan to sustain our arts and cultural institutions. As we all learned recently, the Arkansas Repertory Theatre is in danger of closing. This would be a major blow to our city and we must collectively do all we can to put together a plan to preserve our local arts organizations and help them flourish. Even those who aren’t arts enthusiasts should recognize that a thriving cultural life is a key ingredient to economic growth.
