Americans for the Arts will present Arts Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. again this year and has announced that Alec Baldwin will be attendance to support the cause.
In it's 24th year, the event is a crucial attempt to increase public funding for the arts and having Alec on board will hopefully bring in a lot of donations. Of the event, Alec said in a statement:
"Government support of the arts has been important to me for the past two decades, and no one is a better advocate for that cause than Americans for the Arts."
Keep arts in the schools! The next generation will surely thank you for it!

Redemption for musical butchery is a long process, but you are working your way back into our good graces, bb!
Christina Aguilera is lending her voice to a fundraiser in support of the arts. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art's latest project is the Lynda and Stewart Resnick Pavilion, described as the "the largest purpose-built, naturally lit, open-plan museum space in the world."
Xtina will perform at the grand opening celebration of the pavilion and when asked about the ocassion, she admitted to feeling "honored" by the invitation.
The gala is open to the public so if you feel like watching FAILtina rework her magic in a classy setting, dig out $5K from your piggy bank and enjoy!
Always nice to hear when a celeb lends a helping hand for a good cause!

Yesterday, California arts advocates were hit HARD when they were shutout for the third time to keep arts education mandatory in schools. In fact, the Assembly voted 76 to 0 in favor of a bill that would allow more students to skip arts instruction entirely during their high school years.
Looks like no one is watching Glee over at the Assembly!
