Exploring the Arts is a foundation singer Tony Bennett set up with his wife, Susan, to fund arts education in New York public schools.
Recently, Mr. Bennett was quoted as saying: “The cuts in arts education have been devastating. Whenever there’s a war, they cut money from the arts. I think about Winston Churchill’s comment when someone suggested cutting arts funding and he replied, ‘What else are we fighting for?’ ”
I love this quote, even if no one can substantiate it to the letter. I believe the sentiment was there.
