"Part of what arts education does is it teaches people to see each other through each others eyes. It teaches us to respect and understand people who are not like us. And that makes us better citizens and it makes our democracy work better."

- President Barack Obama

"The life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction in the life of a nation, is very close to the center of a nation's purpose -- and is a test of the quality of a nation's civilization."

- President John F. Kennedy
