This Is What Democracy Looks Like

About

Since the White House released the federal budget proposal, which called for a big spending increase on the military, huge cuts domestically, and the total elimination of key arts and humanities programs, museums and citizens have stepped up their advocacy efforts. On select Tuesdays, the MCA is providing postcards, pens, and inspiration to help you tell your elected representatives how the budget cuts could affect you. Featured here are a few of the postcards written (and drawn) by visitors as young as 15 who wanted to share their views publicly. Join us on Art Museum Day, Thursday, May 18, 2017, to write your own postcards to Congress.
