How should we consider the case for and against government support of theaters and museums? It’s election season, so the topic has come up, with folks citing Mitt Romney’s threat to defund Big Bird. Locally, we’ve seen the closing of Marietta’s fine Theatre in the Square (not that another grant or two could have saved it). Today, we offer three opinions, as writers make their case for reframing the arts debate, which they say shouldn’t be reduced to a pro/con wrestling match over public money.
