Secretary of Art or Culture?

If Brazil could have a Minister of Culture, don't you think we could too???

Brazilian music icon and former Minister of Culture, Gilberto Gil

Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President-Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts and I couldn't agree more. 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 pass the link on to your family, friends, and colleagues.
