A Secretary of the Arts
SIGNATURES FOR A REQUEST TO PRESIDENT OBAMA SEEKING
TO APPOINT A SECRETARY OF THE ARTS.
Quincy Jones, famed musician, has started a petition to ask President-Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. Â While many other countries have had Ministers of ArtÂ 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.
