Artists and the organizations that promote and educate them breathed easier Monday after learning that the Virginia Commission for the Arts had not been erased entirely from the state budget.
The House of Delegates originally proposed eliminating funding for the commission, which provides grants to arts organizations throughout the state, but legislators agreed on March 14 to a budget that cuts those grants by 16 percent.
About 300 arts advocates, including a group from the Twin Counties, flocked to the General Assembly last month to plead for the arts commission.
