The Creative Coalition’s Annual Arts Day on Capitol Hill

Washington, DC, April 26, 2016 – This Friday, The Creative Coalition’s Arts Team comes back to Capitol Hill to focus national leaders on the efficacy of the arts.  “We feel confident that every elected official will see the value and efficacy of the arts for our next generation of domestic and global leaders — arts is a national issue that supersedes the red and blue battlegrounds,” said The Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk.  “The message is simple – fund the arts, don’t defund one of the nation’s greatest commodities.  For every $1 spent on the arts, $7 comes back into our communities.”


The 2016 Creative Coalition Arts Day Delegation to Capitol Hill and the White House including President of The Creative Coalition Tim Daly (“Madam Secretary”), Emily Ratajkowski (“Gone Girl”), Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries”), Rosario Dawson (“Daredevil”), Neve Campbell (“House of Cards”), Gabrielle Union (“Being Mary Jane”), Wendi McLendon-Covey (“The Goldbergs”), AnnaLynne McCord (“90210”), Constance Zimmer (“UnREAL”), Lisa Edelstein (“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”), Esai Morales (“The Brink”), and other delegates to be announced.
