Irvine's cultural programs survived the city's budget ax Tuesday, the same day the city's Fine Arts Center received a boost from the National Endowment for the Arts. Although a two-year total of $430,000 was pared from fiscal 1991-93 budgets for various cultural programs--$100,000 more in cuts than originally proposed--there were no layoffs and the city's newly established Cultural Affairs Commission will remain in existence.

Irvine is no exception this year in facing a budget shortfall. Understandably, if regrettably, the city manager has proposed a 15% reduction in expenses and a 20% reduction in staff for Irvine's Cultural Affairs Commission.

When Eleanor Bay, president of the Anaheim Arts Council, was asked recently what she thought about supporting culture with fees charged hotel guests--revenue now being collected and spent on other city needs--she reacted as if queried whether it might not be smart for city councilmen to convert their paychecks into food stamps for pimps and drug dealers. "We don't do that!" Bay protested during a public meeting on the arts in Orange County. "I certainly would never go to our City Council and ask for a dime!"
