Secretary of the Arts

The following short email plea came through my email this week. If you haven’t had a chance, I would urge you to go and sign the petition.

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.

  1. I signed it

  2. Me too! How are you, my friend?

  3. Did you know that Andrew Wyeth died today at the age of 91? Sorry, I didn’t know where else to post this; it doesn’t have much to do with a Secretary of Arts. I’m such a fan of Andrew Wyeth; he did Chadd’s Ford and the Brandywine Valley proud. I even love his green museum!

  4. No, I didn’t!
    Thanks for pointing that out, Nancy.
