Noted without comment: Over the weekend, Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, issued a statement on a proposal to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. “Abolishing the NEA would have disastrous consequences for the arts and for communities across our nation,” he said. “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.”
