High Museum of Art, Atlanta and more than a dozen metro Atlanta arts and culture organizations (including AAMD members Spelman College Museum of Fine Art and Michael C. Carlos Museum) are voicing their support for arts funding with the #GAArtsFuture postcard-writing campaign. The goal of the campaign is to demonstrate the arts’ positive impact on the lives of Georgia residents and to underscore the importance of continued funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and Institute of Museum and Library Services. In designing this program, the High sought to create a model that could be replicated at other museums - so even if you're not in Georgia, you'll want to check this out! Read all about it on the High Museum's website.
