Description

San Francisco Chronicle looks at the disparity in funding for art organization, and finds that "institutions flush with cash garner most aid while those in need struggle." The story exposes how - due to support from wealthy philanthropists and government aid - the San Francisco Symphony has excess funds that far exceed watchdog groups' standards. A major finding is that, in distributing art funding, state and local government authorities consider artistic quality and potential impact on the community, but not financial need. The report points to the sky-rocketing salaries of the directors of the largest art entities in San Francisco. It also includes tables with data on money received and spent by large art and cultural groups in the city.
