Bella Lewitzky's inspired idea of a series entitled "In the Works" deserves the attention of the arts organizations of Los Angeles ("Lewitzky Series Offers Therapy for the Intimidated" by Douglas Sadownick, Jan. 20). Instead of blaming the absence of new audiences on the lack of arts education programs in the schools--a convenient escape hatch--she has taken responsibility all too frequently shirked by arts organizations to enliven the dialogue with audiences in a creative and refreshing new way. She is inviting the public to become a participant in the equation of artist, arts organization and audience.

The next time you're at a $750-a-plate fund-raiser for the opera, check Placido Domingo's shadow. In it, you're likely to find a solid citizen named Marc Stern. You've probably never heard of Stern, but when a million-dollar gift falls through or a soprano comes down with a sore throat or the artistic director has a brainstorm, Stern, the chairman of the opera's board of directors, gets a call.

WHERE should arts organizations go in search of better attendance? Down to the nightclub, bumpty, bumpty bump (to quote the 1970s funk ditty by Tower of Power). Or to the espresso-soaked haunts of poets, folkies and jazz fans. That's one of the recommendations in "Motivations Matter," a survey and analysis commissioned by the Wallace Foundation as part of an ongoing project to help arts presenters build audiences.
