Arts Funding

“I have opposed federal funding for the National Endowment for the Arts because I believe it is not proper to use tax dollars for what many Americans feel are the obscene and inappropriate projects this organization has supported. I support providing federal block grants to the states for arts education and artistic endeavors pursued by state and local authorities, while assuring that federal tax dollars are not spent on obscene or offensive material.”
-John McCain, 1999

    Rashid Johnson, Cosmic Slops is actually at Richard Gray Gallery, not Monique Meloche. The two galleries are hosting concurrent exhibitions of the artist’s new work. Richard Gray is in the Hancock Building, 875 North Michigan Ave. The opening is Friday, September 5, 5-8 pm.
