Art funding in America is under threat and it’s become more urgant than ever for us to share our art and why it matters with the world.
We’re excited to launch People For the Arts, an ongoing conversation meant to highlight how important art is in our society.
I’d love for you to be some of the first creators to contribute to our rotating gallery, where we’ll feature artists who have something to say on the subject of:
What does it mean to be an American?
How does art encourage democracy?
What is the value of free speech?
To share your art, post it publicly where you normally would (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, your Patreon page, etc.) with the hashtag #ForTheArts and we’ll scour the internet for your work.
Let me know if you have any questions and thanks ahead of time for sharing your amazing perspective!

P.S. You do not need to be from the United States to participate; would love to see international creators contributing too.
