Dear Mayor Bowser:

We, members of the DC arts community, are angered by your actions over the past year with regards to the operations of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH). You and your appointees have threatened our basic first amendment rights, put at risk funding that is essential to the viability of our communities, raised concerns about the care and safety of our city’s art collection, and jeopardized the reputation of DC as a world class cultural capital. We urge you to refrain from causing any further damage. 

Specifically, we ask that you do the following:

We value the arts community here in DC too much to stand by and watch you destroy it. The DCCAH has a fifty-year reputation for advancing excellence in the arts in DC. If you want to be a mayor known as an advocate for the arts, as we’ve heard that you do, we ask that you support the independence of the DCCAH in advancing and supporting the interests of artists, cultural producers, and arts organizations.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned
