According to an email making the Hollywood rounds, Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President-Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. “While many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries, The United States has never created such a position,” the email reads. “We in the arts need this and the country needs the arts — now more than ever. Please take a moment to sign this important petition and then pass it on to your friends and colleagues.” The petition is located at: www.petitiononline.com/esnyc/petition.html.
