What a great week of blogs in our first Local Arts Agency Blog Salon!

Thanks to our bloggers and all our commentators, Tweeters, and Facebook sharers.

As I read each of these blogs I was reminded again and again of the famous Tip O’Neill quote “All Politics is Local” only I insert “All Art is Local.”

And the work that our local arts agencies do throughout the United States helps us understand, explore, and create a better place for all of us.

I love that in Oxford, MS there is partnership between the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council and the Cathead Vodka Company.

I was inspired to hear about the great rebuilding that’s going on in Toledo.

And who knew that the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs was running a radio station?

I was impressed to learn how the new local arts agencies are doing their work, rethinking how to do it better and smarter.

Thanks to you, our readers, for participating in this great week of local arts posts. I hope that you will continue to revisit this Blog Salon in the future for more creative ideas and inspiration.

Fortunately, all of the posts will remain on this site through one easy link (

Keep in touch. Keep it local.
