Subsidized arts work-live spaces have proven economically inefficient, and artist ownership has proven especially destructive -- it has made the owners real estate speculators first and artists second. Eventually rich dilettantes or patrons have bought out working artists.

What cities lack most is artist work space, and that can be shared. The most urgent local need is for performing arts practice and rehearsal space, since noise is such an issue in the urban environment, but visual artists need more than light - ask any sculptor or enamellist.

DC government once fostered such arts incubators -- the Landsburg Building in the 70s, the Stables Arts Center in the 80s -- but city government has abdicated this role. It is disappointing to see nonprofits misdirect their scarce resources when it comes to the arts.
