Legislature Cuts TCA Funding
Recently, Gov. Rick Perry proposed funding cuts to the Texas Commission on the Arts, a state agency that promotes art, art education, and tourism throughout the state of Texas. Since this impacts countless programs across the state, I've chosen just a few of the ones based in Austin. And since the organizations are art-based, I chose to create bitmaps on each of the crayons that take you to a page with a brief synopsis of what each of them focuses on. Since there are so many of these programs that are losing funding, I think the animation does a nice job of showing the ones in our own backyard. The write-ups provide background into the organizations. The Texas flag at the bottom serves as a "home" button that takes you back to the original animation. Enjoy!
