Try again.

Even though my crtique was about artistic merit, and no mention was made as to costs, you've now piqued my interest, and surely it would help people evaluate the value of something's worth, if they knew the monetary cost? Especially as we now have a thread about the value of public funded art.

Third time luck.

What were the costs of the three recent local projects, and were they soley funded by the Lottery? If not where did any other funding come from?

S'cuse me, could I ask if this public purse everyone is going on about is crotcheted? And if it is, could that be the reason why so much public money seems to leak from it?

Community art projects bring all sorts of people together.

You won't be allowed. You're only allowed to make a mountain out of a molehill on here.
