days of the festival We stay very busy anil we like it that Felder said The Arts and Business are keeping these days g Every now and then I realize how dated my terms are like keeping corn for instance That goes all the way back to the time I was a teenager Sand you dont want to know how long that was I suppose the phrase jtoday would be theyre an I think my longgone label jlworks best the arts and business Ware in good company with each other they both know it In fact theres new marketing focus steadily surging the states these days its Cultural Municipal agencies are looking increasingly to as their potential customers for theatres museums and con Icerts That bit of information was irecently printed in the San Antonio and the Texas Com i on the Arjs backed that idea to hilt in its last newsletter But its not only the agencies are convinced of the value of the cultural bureaus and The Art of the Matter not only between the visiting consumer and the arts or business community but also and even more importantly between business and the arts One could say if one felt a little mis chievous that what we have going is a healthy 1 eg Him ate menage a In other words business is sup porting the arts Elizabeth Elliott whiph attract cul tural tourists which in turn spend money in restaurants accommodations bou tiques etc development officials are ing Die mesfnige loud and clear f STEP ASIDE BIG CITIES Yes we know about Chicago and e people who stormed the city to visit the Art Institutes exhibit of French impressionist Claude Monet A ranking chamber of commerce official summed it up succinctly Monet money And weve heard about Santa Fe New Mexico which attracts close to outofstate visitors to its sum mer Opera Festival But for a town our size we cant be beat We have enough diversity of arts and cultural exhibits and performances to satisfy the most artshungry tourist possible And heres the best news so many of our local businesses have come to the same conclusion whats good for the arts is good for them I hear some of you saying Boy is she naive If Business is doing some thing for the Arts then there must be something in it for Exactly I know that That fact makes the arts community even more proud We who labor in galleries museums theatres and concert halls have known for a very long time that we had valid com modities And now the business com munity is acknowledging the winwin situation Weve become partners not just to enhance our citizens quality of life but also to enrich our coffers THE LINEUP Its scary when you think you might omit someones name because almost all the businesses in our fair city have gotten on the bandwagon supporting the arts but there are some very obvi ously dedicated to the winwin goal like Target WalMart Texas Commerce Bank Schlitterbahn Vic toria Bank Norwest Bank Pinto Ranch Grill Plaza Diner TreeTops Riverside Grill Lacks First Commercial Bank Lubys and the list goes The final word is were proud of the partnership It not only puts more coins in our purses it lends stature to our endeavors Elizabeth Elliott is a guest columnist for the HeraldZeitung writing on the arts and Prospero the lead
