Save the Arts: over 100 artists launch campaign to stop funding cuts

'Over 100 leading artists – among them David Hockney, Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor, Jeremy Deller and Antony Gormley – have joined together to fight government cuts in one area where Britain still leads the world: culture.'

The campaign launches today, with a brilliant new animation by David Shrigley, An Important Message About the Arts, that ponders such weighty matters as public subsidy and public service – oh, and asks whether Tracey Emin is worth as much as a fire engine.'

Via the Coalition of Resistance website.

You can see who supports the campaign and sign the petition, which will be submitted to Culture Secretary Jeremy 'Rhyming Slang' Hunt (pictured, with David Cameron), HERE.
