Watch For Yourself: NJN Reports On Closing Of Montclair Arts Council
Report talks about how the council had acted as a bridge between businesses and the arts
NJN reported this week on the closing of the Montclair Arts Council, calling the organization a bridge between arts and business. In December, the Montclair Town Council decided it couldn't afford the $80,000 needed to fund the council going foward. In the NJN piece, Councilor Nick Lewis said he realizes $80,000 may not sound like a lot of money, but that it's the cost of a police officer or a fireman. But MAC officials argue that the organization had brought in income and helped make Montclair a regional destination for visitors interested in the arts. To see the report, go here.
