    Reacting to concerns that subsidizing a new downtown sports arena could hurt funding for the arts, the City Council last week delivered a boost to some of the city's marquee cultural organizations and committed to helping others in coming months.


    Crocker Art Museum patrons enjoy works by Norman Rockwell in November. The City Council is willing to forgive up to $7.5 million in loans to the museum. To qualify, though, the museum must raise $2.5 million for its endowment.

    The 39-year-old Community Center Theater is to get $8.5 million for renovations. That's less than one-fourth of its estimated needs.
