Museums, Arts Groups and the Economy
I read "Feeling the Squeeze - Museums and arts groups brace for dip in donations," by Geoff Edgers, in The Boston Globe, on Sunday October 5, 2008.
While this article mentions institutions in Massachusetts, it's really a reflection on the national picture. The economy is having an effect on Museums and Arts Organizations, but how big the effect will be depends on whether the museum does or does not have an endowment.
While most of us are not in a position to make sizable donations to our favorite, or local, Museums or Organizations, becoming a member is a more affordable option, and one way to show our support.
