Cyntha Buckingham Featured in Salt Lake Tribune Article Supporting the Arts and Humanities

  • As announcements of potential arts and humanities funding cuts loom, Utah's advocates are increasingly framing their arguments in the language of economic progress, underscoring educational tours and community-based programs. Support the arts, they say, and you're supporting job creation in the creative economy, as well as the state's branding and tourism.

    Our own Cynthia Buckingham, executive director here at Utah Humanities, spoke articulately on behalf of Utah's cultural sector in this Salt Lake Tribune article.
