Watch arts Q&A with mayoral candidates

In college, Joe Mallahan minored in art. Mike McGinn’s iPod features a mix of music – from jazz to folk to roots reggae. Seattle Channel’s C.R. Douglas sat down this week with the mayoral candidates to talk arts and culture. Learn more about their personal tastes and hear what the candidates have to say about arts education, affordable cultural space, the future of Seattle Center, dedicated funding for the arts, the City of Music initiative and more.

Read the candidates’ responses to an arts and culture questionnaire issued by the Washington State Arts Alliance. To date, several candidates for Seattle City Council, city attorney and mayor have submitted their responses.

It’s encouraging to hear mayoral candidates recognize the importance of the arts. Go Seattle! Communities with the greatest art funding are consistently rated the best places to live.

If you support the arts, you may want to know that I’ve just launched a new site devoted to art, http://www.grassfedart.com, and I invite artists and artisans to join.

You’ll be the first, or among the first.

Thanks!
