By David Lasseter, AP WriterArt and architecture, the future of New York City, and, for many, the art world, is looking pretty good.
But some people worry that the art is not getting better, especially in areas where it matters.
Here are six reasons that might be a contributing factor.1.
A little more money: The $4.5 billion annual arts and design budget in New York alone will get a boost from the recent federal budget that aims to help artists and designers make the city a more creative place to live, work and play.
That figure doesn’t include the $300 million that the city and state governments plan to spend annually to support the emerging craft beer and food industries.
And it doesn’t even include $50 million in federal funds to help arts institutions, including arts centers, attract new talent.
But if the federal funding is more than half of what the state’s funding is, that could mean an extra $5 million a year for artists.2.
Less competition: Art and design are already a highly competitive field, with fewer places to hone their skills and a lack of funding from the government to boost artistic pursuits.
Many of the city’s top art galleries have closed, with a few notable exceptions.
Many schools are in the process of shutting down, and some institutions are closing as well.
And even with federal funding, many arts and creative-arts centers have been struggling to keep up with the demands of a rapidly changing market.3.
New models: The city is embracing new ideas in an attempt to bring artists, designers and other designers to the city, and that includes the opening of galleries.
But there are a lot of new and less-expensive options available.
While the city may be expanding the number of venues, it is also pushing more creative studios, art-world museums and more art galleries to the east side, north and west sides, and south of the river.
Some of those have seen an increase in visitors and revenue.4.
A new focus: New York is the capital of New Jersey, and the state has more of a role in its development than in most other states.
But New York and New Jersey are already seeing the effects of a recession that has left many areas struggling to recover.
That includes New York’s arts scene, where the city has seen more closures and a slowdown in new arrivals.5.
A shift in strategy: A growing number of cities are trying to attract new creative industries and industries that might not be as established.
New York has made an effort to diversify, and it’s investing in more creative-art centers.
But the state hasn’t done as well, and cities like New Jersey and Los Angeles have a growing number in their own right.
And the city is losing its ability to attract artists and the arts to other states that have the money to attract talent.6.
New technology: New technologies have allowed artists and creative arts to take on more and more of the work that previously was done by professionals.
Artists, for example, can now work in virtual reality, which is becoming increasingly popular among artists.
And more and less expensive digital devices are allowing artists and artists to collaborate on projects that have previously required them to use computer software.
But there are also risks that are becoming more apparent.
There is less money for art and design to pay artists, to train and equip them, and to hire staff.
Some arts institutions are also having to make cuts.
New artists are being recruited less often, and they are taking on fewer and fewer full-time staff.
And that’s a problem.
It means that, as a result, artists are not getting the kind of training and experience they need to get ahead in the art and creative industries, said Daniel Kline, president of the New York Academy of Music and Drama, a nonprofit arts organization.
And, he said, it means that artists are getting a bad deal for their work.
“We are losing our creative identity,” Kline said.
