The head of the Colorado Council on the Arts has been fired under pressure from the governor to save money.
Executive director, Fran Holden's departure effectively completes the elimination of the council's staff and puts the state at risk of losing $614,000 in federal funds. The National Endowment for the Arts will only distribute grants to states with functioning arts councils.
Gov. Owens doesn't want any more than $40,000 spent on payroll and other operational costs at the arts council. Holden earned $87,000 a year.
