Arts & Humanities

A vibrant arts sector is a vital part of our communities in Minnesota’s Fourth District. Federal investments in the arts and humanities improve education for our children, offer important opportunities for our veterans, create jobs, foster economic growth, and improve our quality of life.

At the annual rate of just one dollar per taxpayer, federal support for the arts and humanities is a fantastic return on our investment. I strongly support robust federal funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities and will strongly oppose any attempts to cut or defund these vital cultural institutions.
