“The arts are a fundamental part of American culture and its economy,” said The Creative Coalition President Tim Daly. “Congress must continue to protect and promote the arts by maintaining federal support for the National Endowment for the Arts. The Creative Coalition is honored to once again speak with lawmakers about the importance of the arts and hold our nation’s leaders accountable for defending Americans’ sacred Right to Bear Arts.”
“Increased support for the arts through the National Endowment for the Arts is vital for artists and for our nation’s economic recovery. Yet, many on Capitol Hill still question the value of investing federal funds in the arts,” said The Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk. “Now in its 32nd year, The Creative Coalition’s annual #RightToBearArts delegation has been vital to making the case to protect funding for the arts, the lifeblood of American culture.”
