The Regional Arts & Culture CouncilAwards $300,210 in Grants
Seventy-six artists and arts organizations in the Portland metropolitan area have received funding from the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) for projects to occur in 2006.
RACC is funded in part by local, regional, state and federal governments to provide grants to artists and operating support to art organizations in the tri-county region.
When you went to work today did you think "I sure am glad that I'm working hard so that my local government can buy this piece of crap."
And you may not be sophisticated enought to realize it, but his is quality art. It's title: Whirlymajig.
The RACC, with a straight face, says it's a "sculpture" that was paid for by the "percent for art" program.
