Arts Council Chair's compelling interview on PBS So-Cal
The arts are an essential part of the educational, economic, and social part of our lives, said Wylie Aitken, the newly elected Chair of the California Arts Council, during a televised interview on PBS So-Cal on March 14, 2013. "Some people think that the arts are nice, are a nicety," said Aitken. "It's not a nicety. It's a necessity."
