Technicalities and protocol excuses aside, GCAC (Greater Columbus Arts Council) is failing Columbus with its plan to abandon funding for our Symphony before the dust has settled in our current crisis. The story is unfinished, yet they have publicized their intention to sign their names to a premature end. Is this the kind of leadership you want running your city's cultural engine? For once I can agree with Tony Beadle, the symphony's Executive Director, who is quoted saying, "It just sends a message of nonsupport to the community." They vote on the decision May 27th. You can contact them at GCAC.
