I enjoy art, particularly good music. I gladly pay for it. I understand that 40 or more years ago politicians never had the NEA. Great art and music was created and enjoyed. If people like the arts they will pay for them. With the politicians involved some money has been paid to poor arts that will never sell. So, keep the politicians out of the arts (NEA) and great and enjoyable arts will flourish.
