New Opportunity to help fund California arts through state tax returns
Arts lovers should keep "tax day" in 2011 in mind for a great way to help the arts in the Golden State. Californians interested in increasing funding for arts programs now have a way to directly contribute to the California Arts Council through their annual tax refunds to advance the arts and arts education.
New ArtWorks! Feature: Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble
ArtWorks!, the California Arts Council's profiles of grantees and their impact on California communities, takes a look at Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble, now in their 32nd season.
