2011 Budget Deal: How Did We Do?

Unsurprisingly, not well:

The three federal agencies devoted to making arts and cultural grants will take an 11.2% collective hit under the budget deal that institutes the largest spending cut in U.S. history.
Those three agencies are the NEA, NEH, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (which I must shamefacedly admit I'd never heard of before).
