Wisconsin Arts Board Restores Funding for Marquette’s Haggerty Museum

We have discussed how the Wisconsin Arts Board, in an act of smug and self-righteous intolerance, refused to fund Marquette’s Haggerty Museum because Marquette refused to hire an outspoken lesbian as Arts & Sciences Dean.

This was back in May.

This morning, the Board decided to provide the funding that was deferred back in May. This according to an e-mail from George Tzougros, Executive Director of the Arts Board.

It’s good that the Arts Board backed down, but the threat of the loss of state funding continues to be an ongoing threat to any institution that challenges the politically correct sensibilities of the Board, or of any similar government entity.
