In the wake of the coronavirus, the performing arts have the chance to come back stronger than ever. Here’s how.
President Trump’s proposed budget eliminates funding for the NEA, and apparently not wanting taxpayers to bankroll endeavors beyond the government’s constitutional scope demonstrates his lack of humanity.
The Federalist’s David Marcus joins Ben Domenech for a discussion on why the government shouldn’t fund the arts, New York politics, and more.
The White House asked the Guggenheim Museum for a Vincent van Gogh painting. The museum offered it a potty joke.
Given that a fairly elected president bears no resemblance to Julius Caesar, why did New York’s Public Theater make this choice?
A culture war is not a street fight. Axing the endowments scores points but still leaves the arts captive to academia and its maze of orthodoxies.
The people screaming about PBS, the NEA, and the NEH are the same people who helped tear down the arts in favor of the ‘counterculture.’
Currently the way to succeed as an arts organization is not to create a product that attracts new audiences, but to create a product that pleases those who dole out the free cash.
Cutting funding to antiquated, state-run boondoggles like the NEA and PBS is reasonable budgeting and healthy for both free speech and art.
Dr. Jane Chu will be nominated without a hearing. That’s a shame, because there are serious questions about the role of the NEA in American arts.
We should let the free market sort out productions that people are willing to pay through the nose for.
