Janine Marnien Several area arts organizations are a little richer, thanks to awards from the California Arts Council. The council dispersed a total of $4 million in funds to 664 nonprofit organizations statewide, including The Alex Theatre and Pacific Serenades of Glendale and Robey Theatre Company and The Victory Theatre in Burbank.

I would like to provide some information as a follow-up to your editorial "Symphony deserves city's grant money," April 3-4. My goal is to clarify the points made in the editorial and correct any misconceptions created. The Glendale Symphony and many other arts organizations in Glendale do deserve grant assistance through the program overseen by the Arts and Culture Commission. However, the editorial statement that the Glendale Symphony received no funds from the city is incorrect for the 2002-03 year.

Karen S. Kim The City Council's decision to fund certain arts organizations at the expense of others has sparked some grumblings of discontent. The council Tuesday doled out $57,100 to nine community organizations and individuals who put in requests for funding. Last-minute allocations of $5,000 each to the city's chess club and Glendale Junior Chamber of Commerce for the Days of Verdugo Parade left some members of other publicly funded arts organizations feeling a little shortchanged.

I am concerned about the misconception of Councilman Bob Yousefian and subsequent reporting by the News-Press that the Arts Commission has not raised any funding. In fact, the Arts Commission raised a total of $191,489 in the past two years ($106,703 in fiscal year 2002 and an additional $84,786 in fiscal year 2003) to support arts programs within Glendale Unified. It is true that the Arts Commission does not raise money to support itself, but then neither does any other regular city commission.

Arts are essential part of Glendale In these difficult economic times, it is easy for a city to divert its focus from arts endeavors for what may be perceived as more critical community needs. Fortunately, a renewed debate has begun on the subject of arts and culture and the role they should play in our community (“Council to mull arts candidates,” Jan. 19). Glendale Arts applauds this discussion, and we enthusiastically support an ongoing dialogue that includes arts organizations, public and private partners, community leaders and residents.

CITY HALL — The City Council has endorsed expanding a public art requirement for downtown developers to include all new developments citywide. The city's Downtown Specific Plan currently requires any new development valued above $500,000 to either incorporate an on-site public art installation equal to 1% of the project's total cost, or pay a 1% in-lieu fee to an urban art fund. Under the new proposal, new developments in mixed-use and commercial zones citywide would have to include a public art installation equal to 2% of the project's cost or pay a 1% in-lieu fee to support art installations and civic arts programming.

Murals, performing arts programs and lighting upgrades to the Civic Auditorium to showcase art exhibits are among the top priorities for city commissioners who are trying to reshape Glendale as a public arts draw. The Arts & Culture Commission met this week to start strategizing after the City Council on Tuesday unanimously supported a five-year plan to transform Glendale into a popular arts destination, not unlike Pasadena and Santa Monica. “We're on our way with this,” Mayor Frank Quintero said.

Arts events have boosted the popularity and economic prowess of cities like Pasadena and Santa Monica, and Glendale wants a piece of the action. For the first time in more than two decades, Glendale officials have begun mapping out a five-year arts and culture plan in order to shape the city into a regional draw. “When someone says Santa Monica, they automatically think of that city as an arts and culture destination,” said Annette Vartanian, a program supervisor for the Library, Arts & Culture Department.
