Art Community Will Miss Bloomberg

New York Mayor Michael  Bloomberg has been what some call a “mayor of the arts.” Contributing $200 million of his own fortune, and a significant amount of political capital, Bloomberg has been a prominent supporter of the arts in the nation's largest city. From staging outdoor exhibitions to helping museums complete ambitious renovations, since the beginning of his tenure the mayor has constantly moved the art community forward. Now, as he prepares to leave office in six months, many fear that his replacement will not be as benevolent, or as deep-pocketed.
