ABSTRACT
The author discusses the value of arts as a venue for self-expression. He describes how the arts consistently provide new thoughts which eventually spread to the wider community. He also sees the need to put more funding in the arts contrary to proposals of lawmakers in Arizona and California who think about eliminating arts funding. According to the author, by considering art has no merit, these lawmakers make the Bill of Rights worth less than the paper on which it is printed.
