Here is a link to a grass-roots petition to have a Secretary of Arts created under the Obama Administration. To get a cabinet level position instated in the government would be MOMUMENTAL and so helpful for the arts, arts funding, and arts education.
So follow the link, sign the petition and forward this message on to all you know!http://www.petitiononline.com/esnyc/petition.html"To: President Barack Obama,
Congratulations and thank you for all you do.
Your good friend Quincy Jones said: "...next conversation I have with President Obama is to beg for a Secretary of Arts." [November 14th 2008 WNYC interview by John Schaefer on "Soundcheck."]
We the undersigned support Quincy Jones' plea.
