Working since 1965 to make "American Culture" less of an oxymoron, the NEA
provides funds for a wide variety of arts projects. You may have attended
some local event that received a tiny subsidy in some form from the NEA, or
perhaps seen a film version of a play that benefited from funds at some
point in its life. A whipping boy for pols like Jesse Helms, due to Karen Finley's performance art and Andres Serrano's "Piss Christ", et al. How
will you spend the 60¢ Jesse saves you?
