Support the Arts in the USA! by Helen on 28 September 2005 1:42pm

many american artists would benefit nicely (for a change) if this bill passes.

A snippet:
for artists who donate art to arts organizations/institutions:

"Under current law, artists can deduct only the cost of the materials used to create the works, whereas non-artists can deduct the works’ full value. Thus this legislation has two purposes: first, to increase the number of works of art that go to art institutions for the benefit, use and enjoyment of the public, and second, to correct the inequity under which artists now labor."

Thanks for the support...

Having just seen 'No direction home': Scorsese's biopic of Bob Dylan on BBC2 I agree that compared to the state of the arts in the US in the 1960s the present situation is pretty dire.
(Apart from Springsteen) where is the new Bob Dylan...and please don't tell me Eminem!
