Mr. Arts Honored
More Artists Can Get AidAs of December 1, many of Austin's artists and arts organizations are now eligible for pro bono legal and accounting assistance. That's because last month the board of directors for Artists' Legal & Accounting Assistance of Austin, which has been providing that kind of help to area artists of all shapes, sizes, and disciplines since 1979, voted to raise the eligiblity cap for its services. The cap for individuals has been increased from $18,000 to $22,000, and for families, from $25,000 to $30,000. The new cap for nonprofit arts organizations is $75,000. If you're in need of their aid and expertise, or if you simply want more info on ALAA, call 476-4458.
