    Secretary of The Arts

    From our folks EOW

    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.

    Sign the Petition

    To: President Barack Obama
    Congratulations and thank you for all you do.

    Your good friend Quincy Jones said: “…next conversation I have with President Obama is to beg for a Secretary of Arts.”

    We the undersigned support Quincy Jones’ plea.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    The Undersigned
