It’s an exciting time for the Urban Arts Center, as the prospect of a hot new grant promises to put its street musicians, muralists, and theater guerillas on the map. Most optimistic of all is Fred, an aspiring glass-painter, who dreams of rising above her entry-level job and making her mark on the Center’s famous window (and perhaps even winning the heart of a handsome juggler). Neurotic coworkers, rebellious artists, and capricious sponsors aside, Fred throws her support behind Louise, the charismatic Executive Director, to carry out the Center’s vision of art for art’s sake. But when disaster strikes, the foundations of idealism begin to creak under the weight of market potential. How long can Fred hold on to her dream-and her job—without giving up everything else?
