Energy and the Cultural Community. A Report to the National Endowment for the Arts.
Matthai, Robert A.
This report is an assessment of the energy needs and concerns of the United States cultural community: performing and visual arts groups, museums, historic properties, archives, libraries, community arts centers, zoos, aquariums, scientific collections, auditoriums, and individual artists and craftsmen. The findings and recommendations represent a distillation of the experience, ideas, and concerns of 25 cultural service organizations, 18 government agencies, and 27 cultural institutions, all of which are listed in the appendix. It was found that there are six energy-related issues that are relevant to all types of cultural institutions and groups in all parts of the country: (1) rising energy costs, (2) threats posed by energy shortages, (3) energy legislation and regulations, (4) energy-related information and technical assistance, (5) alternate energy sources, and (6) energy-efficient architecture and design. Recommendations are made regarding steps that government agencies, cultural service organizations, cultural institutions, and individuals might take to help resolve these issues. (Author/MLF)
