Center City of Amarillo is spearheading the city’s application for a cultural district through Texas Commission on the Arts. If successful, Amarillo and many of its arts and tourism groups could be eligible to apply for millions of dollars in grants.

In our “The Economics of Art” episode, which airs at 7 p.m. today on Panhandle PBS, you’ll hear from a TCA official on what the designation could mean to the city and why Amarillo’s proposed district would be one of the largest in the state. Amarillo philanthropist Laura Street talks about the long history of Amarillo arts, and Amarillo tourism guru Dan quandt explains why the arts matter so much to the city.

It’s my first on-air appearance as a Panhandle PBS staff member, and host Ellen Robertson Green, co-worker Karen Welch and I discuss all of our expanded digital offerings, including this Play Here blog, Karen’s Biz Here blog and more.

Tune in tonight at 7 p.m. on Panhandle PBS.
