When Hurricane Maria barreled into Puerto Rico last year, it swept away homes, businesses and jobs. Not only did it leave a catastrophic environmental mess, but Maria also exacerbated the island's debt crisis. That's affecting the basics of life like power and education — but it goes further.

Connecticut Public Radio's Diane Orson (@dorson1) visited Puerto Rico, and spoke with artists about how shifting financial priorities could affect the arts.

This segment aired on August 9, 2018.
