Kelly Hall-Tompkins: Support Music Kitchen and Be the Change You Seek - Help us Meet the NEA Match before May 31st; Still Needed: $5,448

In the News:
The End of the NEA?
"The arts in America wouldn’t be destroyed if the NEA ceased to exist. But music, dance, theater, literature and visual arts would become less widely available, especially in schools, rural areas and poorer communities. Access to culture should not be a function of family income." -Dana Gioia, LA Times
"Together, the three programs that may be targeted account for less than one-tenth of 1 percent of annual federal spending. But even if the arts get only crumbs, administrators said, they are crumbs worth fighting for: much-needed money that supports community projects, new works and making the arts accessible to people in different parts of the country and to those who are not wealthy."
