British Artists get Creative in Protesting Proposed Government Funding Cuts

Oct 27, 2010

As reported in

"In response to the British government’s proposal to cut funding for the arts by 25 percent, British artists have taken not to the streets, but to their studios. Under the aegis of the Turning Point Network, a national consortium that promotes the arts, over a hundred leading artists have launched a campaign that features not just the typical slew of petitions, but also original works of art."
