YYAYYY! Just got word they put the ART back in HEART down there in Congress. YYAYYY!

from Americans for the Arts:

A United Voice
This is an important victory for all of you as arts advocates.  More than 85,000 letters were sent to Congress, thousands of calls were made, and hundreds of op-eds, letters to the editor, news stories, and blog entries were generated in print and online media about the role of the arts in the economy.  Artists, business leaders, mayors, governors, and a full range of national, state, and local arts groups all united together on this advocacy issue.  This outcome marks a stunning turnaround of events and exemplifies the power of grassroots arts advocacy. 



  1. This is a wonderful outcome, and it gives me renewed hope that it will shine on to Australian waters. Yeh (YYaYY?) Party time! Woops sorry got a bit carried away there! :-)

  2. Moira, it didn’t give me a red dot on that map from what I can see from here (Eastern Australia)!

  3. Yayyyy … I am now a visible red dot (actually I am about a 1000 miles up the coast from ‘Brisbane’ but that is where I get landed with technological ‘savvy’!
