Statement regarding National Endowment of the Arts and the Humanities

The Museum of Modern Art joins with sister institutions across the country to urge the House of Representatives and Senate to ensure the continuation of the National Endowment of the Arts and the Humanities. These agencies bring the arts to all Americans, in every state and congressional district, and foster creativity, innovation, and a shared sense of values and understanding of our society. The support provided by the NEA and NEH serves as a vital stimulus and catalyst for living artists, writers, and scholars in rural and metropolitan areas in every state of the nation. We look forward to working with the Association of Art Museum Directors and colleagues across the country to ensure these agencies continue to exist to support artists and Americans.
