I've been thinking about how we are quite primitive in our support for the arts. Read how we can become a much more civilized society, with true support for the arts--and artists--by clicking on to sign the petition(sent to me by eternal friend, Jeanne Adams)below.
Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President-Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. While many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries, The United States has never created such a position. We in the arts need this and the country needs the arts--now more than ever. Please take a moment to sign this important petition and then pass it on to your friends and colleagues.
Happy New Year!
