Rally for the Arts

If you missed it the first time around, make sure you make it to the Rally for the Arts today at 4:30 pm on the steps of Old County Hall (92 Franklin). Protesters will be speaking out against Erie County Executive Chris Collins’ proposed 2011 budget, which would cut around $1 million in funding from all but 10 cultural institutions in the city, leaving 33 not-for-profit organizations without funding. The new budget will also cut $4 million from library aid. The Legislature will hold a public hearing on the 2011 budget, scheduled for Nov. 10th at 5pm on the fourth floor of Old County Hall.

Watch a video and see photos from the Rally for the Arts held on Oct. 25th.
