Re: [BKARTS] Secretary of Arts Petition



If Obama is planning on using FDR as his model, and he seems to be, then the arts will certainly not suffer.

Well personally, I believe that having a person who could represent the
National Endowment for the Humanities as well as the National Endowment for
the Arts at a cabinet level would be extremely useful. Almost all of our
jobs or interests involve book arts, or arts in general. The humanities are
often the first to get cut in "tough times."

Why?

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.
