Secretary of The Arts

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.

You can find the petition here to sign.

..... thanks to karen zieff for forwarding this great message to me!

Mr. Jones is on the right track and I think it is high time that the government recognizes that increased funding for the arts must also follow. I hope President Obama gives this some serious consideration.
