Art Supporters In Kentucky

image The National Endowment for the Arts is likely to see a new head in coming weeks -- and playwright Tony Kushner said it was the best news for the US arts community since the birth of Walt Whitman!

The NEA is also providing another year's funding for the Kentucky Arts Council, which just published its annual report. And Kentucky Congressman Yarmuth's speech on the importance of the arts is now available online (see below).

Only with your support can state and national leaders continue to provide this kind of help to Kentucky artists and arts organizations. Please thank them!
