The Place of the Arts in New Towns. A Report.
This report attempts to find out what America's 20th century new towns are currently doing about the arts. It explores answers to questions concerning the kinds of programs and facilities provided, effective ways to nurture the arts, new and interesting relationships between the arts and the schools, what these towns are learning from established towns and from one another, and the kinds of financial support available. Eight new towns were chosen to provide a fair sample as to stage of development, location, management, and attention to the arts. This report also relates experiences in other settings--small towns, big cities, and the suburbs--of programs, support, planning, and facilities that could be applicable to new towns. The document concludes with a checklist for new-town arts that reflects the study findings and recommendations for things new towns can do to help the arts flourish. (Author/MLF)
