Arts Secretary for the United States Cabinet

Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. While many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries, The United States has never created such a position. We in the arts need this and the country needs the arts–now more than ever. Please take a moment to sign this important petition and then pass it on to your friends and colleagues.

We might not be able to solve all the world’s problems but we can give people the tools “to hope and to cope” and to solve their own problems. SPG January 2009

From “Q The Autobiography of Quincy Jones” p. 30 & 31:

“I began to find peace. I was eleven. I knew this was it for me. Forever:
Each note seemed to fill up another empty space I felt inside. Each tone touched a part of me that nothing else ever touched.”….

After much discrimination Quincy Jones said…”For the first time in my live, I felt no loneliness, no pain, no fear; but rather joy, relief, and even understanding.”…..””I felt different, and never knew why, but from the moment I plinked those notes and laid down those first chords, I finally found something real to trust, and began to learn how to hope and to cope. …… With each visit, my nervousness was calmed and my fear dissipated. I’d found true love and nurturing. I’d found Music. I’d found another mother.”
