Arts tax? Why there is no art.



The art tax is a scam to beautify rich neighborhoods and downtown.

The idea behind it stated that it would pay for art to be installed in all neighborhoods. Hurrah!

If you live near SW 10/Burnside, you have a few pieces of large, beautiful art nearby. If you live near SE 122/Division, you used to have an electronics junction box that was painted to look like it had graffiti on it, but then 2 years ago a car hit it and it's gone.

Yep, art all over the city.
