Why Art Matters!
Expanding the arts in schools brings new energy to classrooms, increases engagement by students, and improves school choices for families. The arts enrich our young people, our schools, and our neighborhoods.
Mayor Thomas Menino, Boston
I look forward to an America which will reward achievement in the arts as we reward achievement in business or statecraft. I look forward to an America which will steadily raise the standards of artistic accomplishment and which will steadily enlarge cultural opportunities for all of our citizens. And I look forward to an America which commands respect throughout the world not only for its strength but for its civilization as well.
John F. Kennedy
