Open forum: Was there a ballot on this?
Kudos to the McKnight Foundation for funding artist grants. Nobody forced them to fund artists. However, the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, a government agency, also, granted money, “as appropriated by the Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota.” Was there a ballot initiative on this? If not, then the granted money was not from the vote of the people.
