Certainly Houston Arts Alliance has gotten its share of public criticism lately from artists and more, and its new website isn’t complete yet, but in the wake of all the region’s flooding (too soon? pun really not intended… ) today the HAA sent out a formal “Request for Response” to artists and art organizations and here is is verbatim:
Artists and arts/cultural organizations: Did you suffer damage or loss due to this week’s flooding?
