When Joanne Kozberg gazes down on Grand Avenue from her office at the Music Center, she doesn't just see cars darting past vacant sidewalks, concrete fortresses and isolated landmarks. She envisions a thriving cultural and civic corridor with people-friendly attractions, including street-level greenery and good restaurants.

The acronym stands for the Organization Support Program, a study group formed by the California Arts Council, the state agency which awards more than $15 million in grants annually to artists and arts organizations.

Question: In a time of shrinking government budgets, how does one justify spending public money on the arts, when so many other needs are unmet? Answer: I recognize there are serious choices and a number of very important programs are being adversely affected by the economic situation we find ourselves in. But I believe the arts are part of the solution to our problems; they are not part of the problem.
