Reflection #11: The Necessity of the N.E.A

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/22/opinion/why-art-matters-to-america.html?_r=0

I totally believe in what this article is implying about the importance of arts and how its preservation and promotion in the United States is in jeopardy.  While this article does a good job of outlining the various functions of the N.E.A. and finished with some inspiring statements about the importance of the arts, I wish it had done a better job of connecting these two modalities.  I want to know why I should care about the N.E.A., but I also want to feel inspired by the lofty, sweeping statements the author is making about the arts.
