In this article I describe in broad outline the nature of the transactions that define the arts sector and relationships between the for-profit and not-forprofit parts of it. I base the article on a component of a 2000 report to the Irvine Foundation, which itself was an outgrowth of the 1998 American Assembly entitled “Deals and Ideals: For-Profit and Not-for-Profit Arts Connections.”

This review will discuss how, despite a host of environmental challenges, arts policy entrepreneurs have been able to work with elected officials and other decision-makers to bring forth a wide array of innovations at the state level. The state arts policy community is active in the exchange of models, and makes good use of existing mechanisms that encourage the transfer and adaptation of policy ideas from state to state. Most of the mechanisms that assist with the transfer of ideas are fairly highly evolved, but opportunity certainly exists to strengthen these efforts or to develop new

While I expect that the heterogeneity of institutions in arts, historic preservation, and heritage/folklife parallel the situation in the humanities, it is nonetheless useful to state here that the financial, programmatic, and collaborative profiles of humanities institutions are highly individual -- e.g., some state archives are well financed and have broad areas of responsibilities while some others may be narrowly focused and disinclined to seek collaborations. Likewise state humanities councils vary in many ways, including how well and in which ways the state government provides support
