Artisphere over budget for third straight year

Arlington’s Artisphere is over budget for the third year in a row and needs an extra $800,000 from the county to stay afloat, the Washington Examiner reported.

Arlington County officials gave the arts center $1.6 million to start the year, but now County Manager Barbara Donnellan expects it to need as much as $2.4 million to cover its expenses. Artisphere spokeswoman Annalisa Meyer attributed the shortfall to low attendance, poor concession sales and underfunded salaries for the center’s temporary employees.
