In good times, which stretch back more than a decade, the arena split its profit with the city. In 2015, the city received $15,165, deposited into a capital reserve account for future repairs and renovations.
If the arena loses money, it’s up to the city to cover the gap, according to the contract signed in 2011. That means backfilling where revenues fall short of expenses, within a limit set each year by a complex formula.

Interpreting Alaska Native Art through Rauschenberg and Benjamin | Arts & Entertainment | anchoragepress.com
I am at Pleiades Gallery in New York City for my own solo show “Underpinnings, Truth is Found Beneath Surfaces.” Using strong colors, often clashing, I paint what is often overlooked: ropes on a dock; basement pipes; yes, hydrants. Presenting paintings to a Chelsea audience or putting my ego onto a wall is always daunting, but hopefully makes me a more sensitive art critic.
