Handling the Budget at the Utah Arts Festival in Salt Lake City

Tough and even tougher times are affecting the art fairs around the country. In Pontiac and Toledo they are finding alternative funding sources for art fairs that had depended on Chrysler's largesse. But even far from the Rust Belt the slow economy is affecting the planning. From the
Deseret News in Salt Lake City: "Last September, I drew up three budget scenarios," said Lisa Sewell, the festival's executive director. "In one, I laid out a 10 percent cut. In the others, I did a 30 percent cut and a 50 percent cut. Then I presented them to our board and showed them what we could do."
