.think of the 80's when so many art(s) programs were
cut from public schools because of funding. California...NYC...to name a
huge two. Only now are some areas coming back strong in the arts (NYC now
has a regents exam in the visual arts!)
Think of the funds cut to the NEA...funds that go to working artists,
museums, education grants...etc.
And what was the political party in office during the eighties?
