All this week, VPR is observing the one-year anniversary of Tropical Storm Irene. A number of arts organizations were affected directly by the storm's impact. At the Weston Playhouse, floodwaters from the West River destroyed a newly renovated orchestra pit and dressing rooms.
Revels North lost their entire costume inventory.
But the storm also had a cascading effect on the arts.
Alex Aldrich, the executive director for the Vermont Arts Council, talks about the impact of Irene on the arts community.
