Things are still in the early stages, but Ray Solley of the Tower Theater says they're getting a lot done.

 

"I think what is growing out of these meetings is a growing sense of collaboration between profit and non profit, public and private and non profit and commercial entities.  That's how a lot of these culture funds can grow and expand and have impact is to make sure collaboration between arts and tourism."
 

A 13 member commission will oversee the fund.

 

The arts and cultural organizations in the area hope to increase their revenue and increase their chances for survival, while promoting tourism.
