Quincy Jones has launched 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. This would be a crucial step in ensuring the
strength of the arts community, especially in this time when so many
arts organizations are threatened...and when the country needs the
arts more than ever. Please take a moment to sign this important
petition and then pass it on to your friends and colleagues.
