cronig likes arts but does not understand science. Take away science and the arts will surely kaput.If the arts were so great, they would self support, but like all liberal things, they lose money and need govt help. A liberal success story. The most "fertile" area in the posts ? cronigs mind, with all that baloney that arises in his posts. The rhetoric, name calling. Now thats arts , thats a liberal. hey cronig, you did not answer. how does self loathing fit in here. Give us your artsy mind. Liberals flock to the arts because it requires limited thinking, you simply mock, like cronig does, all your detractors. Science attracts people like me, repubs, as it requires thought. Thinking, like work is foreign to a liberal.

DC, I'm well aware of SUNY/F. However, for an institution whose hallmark is "the arts" I really would expect more out of King Hall. The arts community there is very small and self-contained for the most part.

Chautauqua does attract the richie rich artsy *****y crown, I'll give you that. It's fairly seasonal.

I suppose my issue with declaring this an "arts" area is that it is not attracting anyone outside the typical arts crowd. Anyone not in the arts has no clue what's going on, where it's going on, or how to attend the goings on. The arts don't draw in this area the way, for instance, blues draws in Memphis, or jazz in New Orleans. Now those are ARTS areas.

The local arts community thinking this is an artsy region doesn't make it so. Certainly locally, outside the SUNY/F crowd, it's not a draw.

PR: SUNY-Fredonia is renown for being an "arts" college, performing arts. Then, there's Chautauqua Institution: orchestra, ballet, theater, visual arts, opera...

There are so many other parts of this state where yogurt has more active culture and WNY, including us, isnt one of them.

Here's the problems with those "in the arts".. I quote Sarah: "Since Western New York is an artistic community,[etc]"

On the contrary, WNY is not an arts community. Although there are places where the "arts" supposedly thrive, the Theatre District and Lewiston, that's about it. And it takes government handout money from the Erie County office to keep the "arts" in Buffalo afloat.

The "arts" are so engrossed in their "arts" that they just never understand real life. They never think or live outside of their own box. The arts are dying in WNY if anything.

Now I have nothing against the arts, I don't care for the politics in the "arts" so to speak but that's besides the point, I enjoy theater and music and wish it would thrive.

I just needed to point out that Sarah, once again, has her head up her derriere. No surprise.

Steinerdzzz...no one even wants to go near, let alone entertain, that altered dimensionally self-loathing paranoid space in your mind where your definition of "fact" was created...

Hey sarah, the arts have attracted the libs in droves. I submit that libs, with their shallow minds cannot make good art. Example, The V monologues and the various human waste depictions of religious figures. none of these human waste depictions have been of the non christian variety, allegedly so not to offend that group( libs profess tolerance you know ) and cause rioting. better to stick to calm christians. So when he libs actually make depictions , plays or whatever you call art of the great , huge failures of liberalism, it might be considered valuable. Right now the arts are liberal junk.
