Now this is good advertising by Americans for the Arts. Lindsay introduced me to this ridiculously silly commercial where Brahms "Oh Yeah's" it into a family breakfast to convince them of the power of the arts. "Guutentaaaag!!!"
Sidenote: I really do believe that arts enrich and empower individuals to have better futures. I'm not sold on increased test scores and genius but music, literature and visual and dramatic arts give children (well, everyone) something personal to be passionate about. Art brings beauty and hope to situations otherwise desperate. "As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life." ~John Lubbock
