Secretary of the Arts? A Great Idea!


Quincy Jones and a friend from his early days, Ray Charles.

Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President-Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. 

While many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries, The United States has never created such a position. 

We in the arts need this and the country needs the arts--now more than ever. 

A big thanks to Quincy Jones for a great idea - the timing is certainly right! 

My signature was number 22,430. 

"I was never very good at music when I was little. I never paid any attention to it in school."
