Does New York care about the arts? Part 2

Last week The Field testified at a City Council hearing on "Best Practices" in the arts economy. One of my favorite local heroes, Morgan von Prelle Pecelli testified too.

As Morgan says so uber-articulately: "I worry, that [these} artists, who make New York City a flourishing bastion of cultural progression and economic innovation, may disappear not because their art is worthless, but because they can’t hire people with MBAs and marketing degrees to sell their art for them."

Hey JWC - there was a link to Morgan's testimony that was broken, so I pulled it. If you still have it available please re-add. Thanks -MH
