The arts play a vital role in improving the quality of cultural and educational life for everyone in America.
Art opens one's sense to the perceptivity of another - a transformative experience that touches the soul. Those in our communities who use their creativity and encourage others to pursue creative expression contribute to our society and lives in ways for which credit is rarely or adequately given.
I support the arts and have been very proud of the work done in Idaho to expand the education and appreciation of the multiple and varied art forms practiced across the state. I will continue to work to ensure funding for the arts in Idaho.
