Statement from Director Thomas P. Campbell on Proposed Elimination of Funding for National Endowment for the Arts 

Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, today released the following statement:
“Abolishing the NEA would have disastrous consequences for the arts and for communities across our nation.  Funding for the arts is quite simply the lifeblood of the culture of our nation.  It supports not just artists, it strengthens communities, large and small, across the nation on a daily basis, and it helps to support the cultural and educational achievements for which today’s society will be remembered many years from now.”
