Obama and McCain on the Arts

October 7, 2008

A few bloggers have recently written about the arts policies (or lack thereof) of the presidential candidates. Obama has had a pretty substantial issue statement on his website for some time now; in the last few days, McCain, who had not formally addressed the issue, released a paragraph-length statement on the topic to the Salt Lake Tribune. For those of you who are thinking of the arts as the election approaches, take a look at the grid recently disseminated by the Americans for the Arts Action Fund, which succinctly sums up the positions of each candidate.
