The latest round of NEA grants for Access to Artistic Excellence, American Masterpieces, Arts on Radio and Television, Learning in the Arts for Children & Youth and Partnerships is out, and Texas visual arts orgs have got their share. As usual, education is where the money is:
Big Thought, Dallas, gets $25,000to provide inter-generational excursions to art centers for the economically disadvantaged.
Artpace, San Antonio gets $30,000 for outreach activities for youth.
Austin’s Arthouse got $25,000 for teen programs.
The Southwest School of Art & Craft, San Antonio, gets $35,000 to bring in artists with specialized knowledge in an arcane technical area for workshops.
Fort Worth Independent School District gets $30,000 to help students paint three murals.

There’s also a good deal of documenting, cataloging and preserving going on on the federal dime:
The Galveston Historical Foundation got $12,000 to support a symposium on the preservation of cast-iron storefronts.
The Dallas Museum of Art got $70,000 to digitally document and share exhibition catalogues and unpublished checklists.
The Houston Arts Alliance got $50,000 to identify, document, and present the varied folklife found in Houston.
Rice University, Houston, got $15,000 to support Explosion: East Asia Architecture Today.

The closest the grants get to direct support for artists is the $10,000 Houston’s Spacetaker gets for its Artist Resource Center, and, of course the Texas Commission on the Arts gets a whopping $1,075,500 for redistribution.

    You should turn over logs instead of rocks. I think you are assuming too much. Some of us don’t have apps and the moron who left the lamb’s head with string surely would have gotten more ink if he’d left the manager’s head, skinned and ‘with a string’ in there.
    I’ve decided I hate you all.

    what aps do you have? I am so glad I am just like you!
    with my Iphone and all the garbage that comes with my 200 dol phone bill
    so I can be just like you and all the other Iphone look-a-likes.

    I have a verison phone without any aps. I had to replace last month when I washed it in my pants. I remembered too late . I frantically felt around the bottom of the washing machine and found it. And I got really hot in my hand after I
    fished it out. I had to go get a new one the next day. And I had to re-up on some sort of plan and my bill doubled but I got a phone ..just like the drowned one. I needed it too. Too much. But I’m puzzled still as to why I I felt the need to wash my clothes at home after only one day there, and I didn’t check my pockets!
    You aren’t like me. You are way taller.

    You are fully functional, aren’t you?

    Of course.

    How fully?

    In every way, of course. I am programmed in . . . multiple techniques; a wide variety of pleasuring.
