The Iowa Alliance for Arts Education is planning a Fine Arts Advocacy Day at the State Capitol on January 29, 2014. The purpose of the event is to advocate for Fine Arts education in Iowa and ask for legislative support of a bill to add Fine Arts to the Iowa Core. In addition to a "celebrity" luncheon for state legislators, Fine Arts advocates will be scheduling personal visits with legislators. As part of the advocacy material given to legislators, IAAE is collecting statements of support for Fine Arts education from Iowans to be presented to Iowa legislators as part of the Fine Arts Advocacy Day. We are hoping to collect statements from Iowans of differing age levels and occupations from all 99 counties. IAAE is inviting you to respond to the following question:
