Secretary of the Arts

Hello all,

Think of the symbolism of creating a cabinet level position to reassert the country's commitment to the arts. To be seen and heard, we must be at the table. Here's our chance.

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.

If you care - pass it on: (if you tell two friends...and they tell two friends...and so on..and so on...) Only takes a moment, and if we in the arts community don't do it, who are we waiting for?:
