Sign the Petition for a Secretary of Arts

posted by lalabean

Dear Friends,

You may already have received this, but it is so important, I’m passing it along.

Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President 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.

  1. Think what a Secretary of the Arts or Secretary of Culture might do over the course of years. Not much of it would be good for the Arts or Culture.

    Do you really want the government involved? Do you really think they would exert control if they were involved?

    Be very careful what you wish for; a nightmare is nothing but a dream seasoned by reality.
