Arts Funding Today

Arts impact all aspects of our lives.  Art can change attitudes and open eyes. Without art, nations become myopic and insular.  According to my recent issue of Modern Painters, the British government allocates $12.38 per person for arts funding.  Germany, France and Finland are even higher. 

In the United States we allocate 54¢ per person. 

Here is a fun video , titled An Important Message as artists all over Britain fight for not cutting spending on the arts, which the current government is trying to do.  Anglophiles can go here to sign a petition in support of my home country's UK arts funding.
