Secretary of the Arts!

This is a timely idea. The creation of a cabinet level position to reassert the country's 
commitment to the arts would be a huge step forward for a country in need of getting
back to the fundamentals of an open society.

Quincy Jones has started 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. 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 then pass it on to your friends
and colleagues.
