NEA Slide Packet
BOSTON MA, 1996: The National Endowment for the Arts was scheduled to be terminated by the Republican-led Congress and its Contract With America. Each presenter at the conference of the College Art Association received a packet of text slides that they could incorporate into lectures at the conference and in their classes back home. The goal was to inform the audience, initiate discussion and encourage action.
2017: According to the Washington Post, President Trump's proposed budget would eliminate the NEA’s $148 million budget, the NEH’s $148 million budget and the CPB’s $445 million budget, as well as $230 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
