Inbox activism–petition to create Secretary of the Arts


Artblog contributor Max Mulhern recently wrote us:

Tyler Green of Modern Art Notes has suggested that a White House arts advisory be created. His argument is that culture is a vital sector in our society that needs to have its institutions properly coordinated between themselves and the government. He also believes that art can play a role in government. I agree.

Many of you have also been circulating emails about the issue. Here’s the link to an online petition begun by Quincy Jones to ask President Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts.
