Jumping in too....
America generally does not support "the arts" at the same level as is seen
in Europe. In America, art is left to fend for itself in a market-driven
economy, whereas cities and municipalities in Europe will lend assistance
they value the arts in a different manner. This is especially true for
performing arts like dance and classically influenced music.
However, in America there are more venues where grass-roots artistic
activities can thrive. This is especially true at the intersection of
"popular culture" and "the arts."
What America offers many artists is a place where they have more freedom of
expression. People from the world over enjoy more artistic freedom here
than they do in their home countries. Tightening US visa regulations
however are already blocking artists from entering the US. I feel that is
loss for us all.
