The Madden Arts Center is a hub of creativity that opens its doors to artists young and old.
In addition to being a space for public arts classes, the three-story facility is also home to a municipal band and a wide variety of community groups.
When state support doesn’t arrive on schedule or at the level desired, non-profits like this one increasingly rely on the generosity of patrons to keep the doors open.
Peter Gray joined Jerry Johnson of the Decatur Area Arts Council to talk arts funding… and to get a tour.
