I remain opposed to the new plan for Symphony Woods as well as the process that has gotten it to the apparent finish line so quickly. CABD approved Cy Paumier's plan several years ago. If another architect had ideas why wasn't there an effort to combine talents and, perhaps, produce a plan all parties could approve? Since there seems no real hurry to improve Symphony Woods, why not consider a more interactive, inclusive, holistic approach? The mall is a consumption entity belonging to Howard Hughes Corp., as well as others and with adjacent parts belonging to CA. Symphony Woods is a CA-owned public park with Merriweather Post Pavilion and empty acreage behind it belonging to Howard Hughes Corp.

In "Building Community: The Arts and Baltimore Together," a report released yesterday by the Baltimore Community Foundation, author Ernest L. Boyer calls on area officials to reaffirm the importance of the arts to the future of the Baltimore region. "It is the central theme of this report that the spirit of community can be sustained most vitally through the universal language of the arts," he writes. "The arts not only enrich a community, they are community." (Excerpts from the report are printed on the page opposite.

"How does a community blessed with a rich and varied cultural tradition sustain it through troubled economic times?" That is the question that opens "Building Community: The Arts and Baltimore Together," a thought-provoking report unveiled yesterday by the Baltimore Community Foundation.The foundation's answer lies in a renewed commitment to the arts by city and state leaders -- not only to protect the city's cultural legacy by strengthening older arts institutions and encouraging new ones, but as a way of overcoming the racial and economic divisions that threaten Baltimore's future as a vibrant place to live and work.

Some Republicans are seeking to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities to make the point the federal government has no business subsidizing the arts. That's a shortsighted argument. It ignores the enormous expansion of arts activities across the country made possible by the endowments since their founding 30 years ago.But the impact of such cuts would be hard to ignore. They would be felt by every arts groups in Maryland as well as museums, theater companies, dance troupes and orchestras throughout America.
