As the House and Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittees are preparing to make their recommendations for FY 2018 funding for the NEA and NEH, we thought we'd post maps showing museum service in some of their states and districts!
Each symbol on this map represents one of the more than 600 community partners that used the education services of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in 2015.
In the most recent fiscal years (2015-17), 136 AAMD members received at least one direct grant from the NEA. Many of the remaining 84 U.S. members received NEA funds through their state arts council, such as the Missoula Art Museum, which is represented by Sens. Jon Tester and Steve Daines, both members of the Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee.
