trump's proposed budget cuts funding for NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS
Today is Thursday, March 16, 2017
For 50 years, the National Endowment for the Arts has supported arts organizations across the United States. Today, the Trump Administration, staying true to their scumbag persona, proposed a budget that would eliminate all funding to the NEA.
That means funding for MUSEUMS, MUSIC, ARTS EDUCATION, LITERATURE, MUSICAL THEATRE, THEATRE, DANCE, OPERA, VISUAL ARTS, DESIGN, MEDIA ARTS, ARTIST COMMUNITIES, ART RESEARCH, ART ANALYSIS, ART ACCESSIBILITY, LOCAL ARTS PROGRAMS, and MORE … will vanish in October.
So What Can We Do?
