Statement From Ovation's Stand For The Arts Coalition In Response To The Defeat Of The Grothman Amendment

LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "On behalf of Ovation and our Stand For The Arts Coalition, we are thrilled that the amendment introduced by Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI) to reduce funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, was summarily rejected by Congress today.  This is a resounding endorsement of the efficacy of advocacy efforts like those of Ovation's Stand For The Arts platform.  In turbulent and divisive times like these, we are encouraged by the actions of those members of Congress who recognize the multitude of benefits from the power of art.  The arts unify and inspire us, as well as serve as an important economic driver for local communities across the country.  Today, we celebrate this victory for the arts and pledge our ongoing dedication to protect access to the arts for everyone."
