1. Challenges and opportunities for Careers in the Arts

Cultural Change

Nationally our demographics are changing. We "baby boomers" are a dying breed. Take a look at what's happening with antique malls. The people who collected aren't around anymore. Art is going to become another victim of a younger generations values. Antiques were another form of commodity wealth. Attempting to provide employment in the arts will prove how out of touch the NEA has become. Let me give you another example. In 1990 when the ADA was enacted, Congress mandated the USDOJ enforce ADA responsibilities. DOJ partnered up with the Smithsonian and the American Association of Museums. Two awesome publications were developed. But as both the AAM and SI are membership organizations dissemination of the ADA never reached the 35000 museums nationally.
