1 Art Lessons: Learning from the Rise and Fall of Public Arts Funding Marquis, Alice Goldfarb
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1995 HarperCollins. REMANDER MARK at bottom edge. Very clean; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Light edgewear to jacket. 304pp, Index, Notes. Language: English. NOTE: Large size; cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope. 'Marquis characterizes the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) as a cultural bureaucracy dominated by powerful interests--corporate arts patrons, state and local arts councils, unions, advocates for various disciplines. In a lively, slashing history of public arts funding in the U.S. from the end of WWII to the present, she finds that Americans venerate the arts... even though they seldom attend or participate. Highbrow arts institutions, knowing they can depend on NEA grants and wealthy donors, cling timidly to tradition, in her analysis. Meanwhile, the relatively small amounts spent on the cutting edge support a vested avant-garde mainstream of generally baffling, boring or repellent works, according to Marquis. She spells out a revolutionary blueprint for democratizing public support for the arts....'--Publishers Weekly, 1995.
