KEVIN SPACEY SPEAKS FOR THE ARTS
Can anyone stand up to the Republicans who want to ban singing, dancing and all the other joyful activities funded by the National Endowment for the Arts? Maybe Lex Luthor (Superman Returns) or Dr. Evil (Goldmember)? A hard-bitten character from Hurlyburly, American Beauty or The Big Kahuna? What about Bobby Darin (Beyond the Sea)?
Academy Award-winning movie star Kevin Spacey -- who played all these roles -- gets his chance to speak truth to power on Apr. 4, 2011, when he delivers the 24th annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Admission to the lecture is free, though reservations are recommended. Also featured is a performance by the Touch of Class Show Choir from Chantilly High School in Chantilly, Va.
The evening lecture is the highlight of the two-day-long "Arts Advocacy Day" conference on Apr. 4-5, 2011, a citizen lobbying event organized by Americans for the Arts and now in its 24th year. The schedule involves a day of training and then visits to the offices of Senators and Congressmen. For more info, and to register to take part, visit www.ArtsUSA.org
