The Arts Matter…and Americans for the Arts wants to hear from you. The arts have been proven to have a positive impact on everything from academic achievement to the economy, but support and funding for the arts is shrinking. American for the Arts’ Why Art Matters Video Contest is your chance to tell over a million people why the arts play an important role in your life. Whether you’re a part-time writer, a teacher in a rock band or a student painter, take a shot at making a difference.
The winning video will be shown on MTV’s screen in Times Square, one of the largest electronic displays in the area. For contest and submission details, visit the Americans for the Arts' website.
