Curbed Classifieds: GM Cultural Affairs

More on that NY Times art story: Following New York, Los Angeles is the second art capital of the nation, but no one is coming to see us. "While New York, London and Paris each attract 10 million to 15 million such visitors per year, Los Angeles draws only about 2.5 million," according to a report cited in the story. Compounding the problem: No cultural master plan for the city. Dammit! And apparently nothing will be done till Mayor Villaraigosa finds "a new general manager for the city’s cultural affairs department, a job that has gone unfilled since the previous department manager resigned nine months ago." On the upside, Villaraigosa has sex appeal, according to the story.
