Cutbacks in federal funding for the arts are affecting state groups. For example, the Durham-based African-American Dance Ensemble will reduce performances in smaller communities and school performances.
Dislike from some public segments and some legislators of two early works in the Art Works for State Buildings Program led to its repeal in 1995. The two works were The Education Wall and The Spiraling Sound Axis, both part of buildings in Raleigh.
Overall, private and public support for the arts in the state increased between 1990 and 1995. Federal funds, however, declined significantly, while state and local government funding rose. The private donations, the largest source, rose only moderately.
