That’s a funny thing, fame. People definitely do treat you differently. When you begin to be successful, people say, ‘Don’t go changing.’ Well, that’s easy to say, but the fact is, you don’t change at all - other people do. - Jonathan Rhys Meyers
When I received the petition by Americas for the Arts that I posted yesterday it had roughly 7000 signatures. This morning it has over 20,000.
Do I think it’ll matter? Probably not. Trump can use his charities to purchase bad portraits of himself and Bannon, well he can pick up velvet Elvis portraits at any old carnival. So do they care about the NEA or PBS, no.
But it feels good to do something. We don’t get much funding through them but what’s good about what we do get is that it’s “unrestricted” meaning we can use the donation for anything … helping to pay our salaries, offering scholarships, buying a new kiln, repairing the burst pipes on a water heater (!), or buying art supplies for our youth programs. We make it stretch as much as possible!
So thank you to all who signed and shared. It hasn’t gone unnoticed!
