Government plans to defund the NEA - at what cost?
Without the National Endowment for the Arts, arts education will be curtailed - the Corporation for Public Broadcasting will lose critical support - theater, ballet and opera will lose a major benefactor - major international exhibitions at many American museums will become impossible, and much, much more. Art For The USA invites artists, worldwide, to post to a public Facebook group where they can share their images - and all others who wish to comment may share their conviction - with Congress
ArtForTheUSA.com – In order to open a dialogue with American legislators, MISSIonLINES has established this address for a Facebook forum where all artists are invited to share images, videos and links – and everyone is welcome to post comments and participate in a survey.
Overview: – "An obituary: The National Endowment for the Arts, 52, of unnatural causes," Michael Wikerson writing for The Hill. MISSIonLINES link: EndowBest.com
Education – "The National Endowment for the Arts' arts education program is focused on pre-K to 12th-grade students, the educators and civic leaders who support them, and the schools and communities that serve them."

Museum Exhibitions – If Federal Indemnity Insurance coverage for works of art loaned to American institutions were to end, America would lose an invaluable resource. NEA support has long enabled U.S. museums to provide Government funded insurance to help reduce the cost of mounting major international exhibitions.

Cost – The total NEA budget was $148 million in 2016. This is 7% of the price the military pays for a single B-2 Stealth Bomber. USA Today reports where the Government's investment in the arts and humanities is spent at MISSIonLINES link: InvestForTheBest.com.
Can America afford NOT to support the NEA?
