Do you believe the United States government should fund more art projects?

  • For Younger Kids

    Art projects really develop the mind for kids at a young age. We know the country wants more mathematicians, engineers, and scientists. Maybe there would be more of them, if we taught them art at a younger age. Instead, we tend to cut these programs to save money on school budgets. We should stop this practice, and put it back to the way it used to be in school.

  • Art is a dying thing.

    The United States owes it to art for its riches and wealth in the world of famous structures. The funny thing is, we lack the world renown artists, sculptors, and painters that persist in Europe time after time. Most of the world renown art is from Europe, so the US needs to gain ground.

  • It would be great in some ways, but could lead to propaganda.

    We don't want "the government" becoming the ultimate funding agent or even more so the ultimate art critic. The Nazis destroyed a lot of art in wwII they deemed to be disruptive and oppositely funded very pro-nazi practices in art. What if the government politicians started to fund a massive "art" project with similar motives to mislead or sway public opinion for the elites own ends? I think it better to keep art away from the government, and in the hands of the people. Actually, in this way, the government already funds a lot of mainstream art.

  • United States government

    I personally disagree,No, the government should not use taxpayer money to fund art projects. Art projects should be funded by individual investors. The government is already in debt and art projects are not as imperative as paying teachers or members of law enforcement. To fund art projects while teachers are living below the poverty line is unacceptable,

  • The federal government all ready spends to much.

    Art projects may be important to our culture and society, but they should not be funded by the United States government. The government all ready has budget issues. Instead they should be funded by private citizens through donations. This keeps the government from further increasing its debt, and lets the people, that consider those projects important, provide funding themselves.
