National Endowment for the Arts: Adding Insult (bad art) to Injury (stealing from taxpayers)

by John Ellis

After announcing the topic of this article, a friend tweeted me, “Winning friends and influencing people!” His tweet recognizes that this is a topic that many, if not the vast majority of artists do not want to consider. I get that. When your rent payment is dependent on subsidies from taxpayers, you don’t want to even think about messing with the source of much of your income. But a group of people no wanting to consider something doesn’t mean that the thing shouldn’t be considered.

In my latest article for PJ Media, I give three reasons why I believe that the National Endowment for the Arts should be defunded and shuttered.
