“Supporting the arts community is what Bloomington is all about. It has a city’s worth of culture squeeze into a college town. Bloomington has shown building a community on a solid arts foundation facilitates creative expression while boosting the local economy. I support state funding for the arts because it brings so many benefits to Indiana communities just like it has in Bloomington with the support of Lotus.”
Matt Pierce, State Representative
