The national endowment for the arts and its opposition: Danto's argument for art for our sake

Journal of Aesthetic Education 41 (3):111-117 (2007)

: A survey of arguments made by fiscal conservatives who wish to eliminate federal funding of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is given and a critique of them stemming from Danto's argument for art for our sake. Following Hegel's lead, Danto shows us that there is an intimate relationship that exists between nations and their art—that is, that art is central to the political health of a nation. The arguments by conservatives are found wanting and pose no threat to the welfare of the NEA
