Artless Wednesdays in PA

I like to keep a positive atmosphere in this here blogworld known as Bittersweet Harvest, but I had to share this with you because I thought this might be an interesting action to take to make everyone aware of how much art, particularly public art in this case, plays such a part in our society and what it would be like if we didn't have it anymore.

From Save the Arts in PA:
Artless Wednesdays - what is it all about? Starting today and continuing each Wednesday until a budget is passed, we are asking for arts organizations to make a symbolic gesture to draw attention to what our communities might be like if there is no state support of nonprofit arts groups. Our hope is that your gestures will create opportunities for discussion on “Main Street, PA.”

The purpose of artless Wednesdays is to attract public and media attention to the importance of arts support on the state level and to promote greater participation in our advocacy efforts. If you have other ways to draw public attention to how communities will be impacted by major cuts to the PCA budget, please share them with us and we will promote them.
