UPDATE: BCPA reports – finally

A reader located the missing artist fees.  The BCPA should know by now they will lose money paying more than $10,000 for an artist!  Only 1 show made money!

By:  Diane Benjamin


A lot of reports were recently posted.  None of them have the artist fee.  I added a few that I could quickly find.  Last time I posted reports a reader sent me what they found.  Please do that again!  I will update the story.

Every show with the artist fee listed LOST money.

If an artist fee is listed, that number is not included in the profit or loss listed above it.

Note the attendance numbers!

  1. BCPA is currently being subsidized at $750K, over and above 0.25% sales tax revenue. Kind of like the subsidies to the Enterprize Funds.
