The Wheeler Opera House is located in downtown Aspen. City voters will be asked in the upcoming election whether a cap should be lifted on funds raised from the Wheeler's real estate transfer tax to support a broader range of arts and cultural institutions.

Aspen voters this week received their ballots for November’s election. One ballot question drawing particular attention is 2A, which asks voters to lift a cap on grants to local arts organizations raised from the Wheeler Opera House’s real estate transfer tax.

"Morning Edition" host Eleanor Bennett spoke to arts-and-culture reporter Kirsten Dobroth about what 2A means and about what passage would mean for future arts funding in the Roaring Fork Valley.
