Hi folks,

I just received the following note in my inbox and thought I’d share it with you now.



Dear Friends,

You may already have received this, but it is so important, well, I can’t take the risk that you might not know about it!

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. Please take a moment to sign this important petition and then pass it on to your friends and colleagues.


Happy New Year!
