Local support for arts programming legislation

Whether it is from the stage performing a one-man show in Sturgeon Bay or putting on a multi-day festival in Baileys Harbor, Alan Kopischke knows first hand the impact strong arts programming can have on a community. It is why Kopischke was in Madison earlier this year testifying on behalf of a bill getting attention this week that would pump $500,000 into arts projects statewide. The hope is that the grants would provide a stimulus for jobs in the state, something Kopischke says arts programming does relatively efficiently.

The bills already have bipartisan support in the state Senate and Assembly including its author, First District Rep. Joel Kitchens. Arts Wisconsin is also calling for action on a separate bill supporting apprenticeship opportunities for youth looking for a career in the arts.
