Art. Ask for More.

The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) is supporting a national public service advertisement (PSA) campaign to promote arts education —"Art. Ask for More."— launched by Americans for the Arts, the leading non-profit organization for advancing the arts in America, and The Advertising Council.

RACC joins more than arts organizations in all 50 states that will help promote this campaign to their local media. The campaign, its production, and outreach have been made possible by a $1 million grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, which helped to leverage additional needed resources.

This is the first national PSA campaign to promote education in all forms of the arts and will encourage public participation in championing arts education both in and out of schools. The campaign consists of television, radio, print, web, and outdoor advertisements. The advertisements offer humorous portrayals of what children miss when they lack an arts education. They end with the campaign tag line: "The less art kids get, the more it shows. Are yours getting enough? Art. Ask for more."

To view all facets of the ad campaign and access a toolkit on arts education including information on arts resources in your local community, and tips for parents who want to take action on behalf of the arts and arts education see Americans for the Arts.
