Secretary of Art

I received this email from one of my local art groups (Art Talk) of which I belong and thought I would share it:

You may have already received this from someone else, but it is so important, we're passing it along.

Quincy Jones has started a petition to try and influence President Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. Please take a moment to go to the sight and sign at

This is very important. Many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries. The United States has never appointed a person to represent the Arts. 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 pass it on to everyone on your e-mail list.
Thank you.
