A visual of how Erie County's arts and cultural grants have weathered county politics

A story in Sunday's editions by Colin Dabkowski took a look at how Erie County's arts and cultural grants have weathered the political changes in the county.

Here's a visualization that shows how the county grant money has been spread out to non-profit organizations since 1996 – including the county's "red-green" budget crisis of 2004-2005.

See Colin Dabkowski's full story here: Politics change, but Erie County cultural funding has rarely wavered.
