I use this space to discuss issues relevant to the arts and artists, so I generally avoid discussion of political “hot” topics. There is one issue, however, that is gaining attention in the political and cultural landscape that is of great significance to artists. That is the issue of health care reform.
This article (link below) from Americans for the Arts demonstrates the need for affordable health care for self employed artists in the United States. I am one of the artists who currently has no access to an affordable health care program because of my semi-self-employed status. I hope that you will consider the points made by this coalition of arts organizations on behalf of artists.
