IPTC INFO
CaptionBut while organizers have touted the event for boosting the hospitality transportation and construction industries local arts groups say they've been overlooked. The city has committed to raising $32 million for the regatta - none of it for the arts. Artists city officials and organizers have recently been holding meetings on the subject including a hearing earlier this month before the Board of Supervisors' land-use committee. A handful of theater and dance groups - such as FACT/SF ShadowLight Productions and Antenna Theater - have been fundraising and rehearsing for shows in 2013 that will coincide with the race schedule. But Andrew Wood executive director of the San Francisco International Arts Festival says the talks started too late to coordinate art events for 2012. -- --- --- "They're not thinking big enough " he said of race organizers. "If they're going to do it here they need to do something worthy of the city and that includes a fully integrated visual and performing arts program." The problem is money said Jill Manton the Arts Commission's director of policy and strategic initiatives. --- --- --- The city is fundraising to cover basic elements such as public safety transportation and the environmental analysis required by state law. Aside from that a separate $130 000 exists - but only because the port which is building a cruise terminal is required to devote a slice of the project money to art. ______________________ These wistful women rest atop the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
