2013 National Arts Advocacy Day

Americans For the Arts needs your help supporting federal funding for the arts:

National Arts Advocacy Day is on Tuesday, April 9. We are in the final stages of preparing to welcome more than 500 arts advocates to Capitol Hill. Now here’s where we need your help.

Even though you cannot attend in person, you can help your state arts advocacy delegation members who are coming to DC. We need you to write to your Members of Congress by this Friday, April 5th at noon. We are going to tally all of these letters so that your state arts advocacy captain can walk in each Congressional office and say, “Today is Arts Advocacy Day and I want to add my voice to the # other constituents who have already e-mailed you about the importance of the arts and arts education in our state.”

Take two minutes to send a pre-written, customizable Arts Advocacy Day letter to your members of Congress.

Click here to send a letter to your representatives in Congress by April 5 — just customize your message and fill out your address information on the right.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
