Here is a photo of my daughter and I taken at the Obama rally in Denver on Sunday, attended by 100,000+ Coloradoans. It has been interesting to live in a "battleground state" during this election season! Among many other reasons, I am supporting Obama because of his support of the arts and their importance. The Obama campaign has an arts policy fact sheet on their website. If you'd care to take a look at more specifics and supporters, check out the full platform report. The Obama Arts Policy Committee asked committee member and author, Michael Chabon, to "describe the critical importance of the arts at this moment of remarkable opportunity and challenge in our nation’s history." His essay on page 5 of the report is great.
