In my Sunday Spotlight column, I put the focus on the Fresno Art Museum, which — like most cultural institutions these days — is competing in a tough economic climate for donors and stability. The museum has faced some challenges this past year, most notably having to take out a $160,000 “bridge loan” for operations. And just a couple of weeks ago, the fire/burglar alarm system broke, and it’s costing $60,000 to replace it. Still, board president Joe Sciarrone says the museum is hanging on. (More than that, he says it HAS to hang on.)
Check out my column for an in-depth report.
