Reporting to Congress on the importance of funding the arts

As part of our ongoing work to strengthen the arts sector in the Midwest, Arts Midwest provides semiannual updates to members of Congress and the House of Representatives from our nine-state region. These reports serve to inform our lawmakers of the return on government investment in the arts—and the overarching importance of funding the arts—through the National Endowment for the Arts and the state arts agencies.
