"Artists hold applause for Obama"

Politico looks at the Obama administration's approach to the arts so far.

Judith Dobrzynski is quoted as saying: "Obama had a well-defined arts policy and a task force during the transition, so expectations in the arts community rose very high. They disappointed people by not having an arts czar. ... I think it' still up in the air about whether, a few months from now, people say they are doing right or not."
