"In 1st grade, the first week of school I was artist of the week and the art teacher put my work up in the front of the school. It was amazing, I felt important, I felt that my work was valued. That's what I think all children need to be able to feel. "

SENATOR RAUMESH AKBARI

Member of the TN General Assembly Art Caucus

Dear Arts Advocates,

 

Arts Advocacy Day 2022 was so inspirational and educational. Learning the history of the Specialty License Plate program and how it truly impacts the arts across the state of Tennessee was the message that everyone needed to hear... how to support the arts annually with your license plate. I am proud of my license plate (The Arts Fish) and I hope that everyone who joined us for Arts Advocacy Day 2022 was inspired to advocate, be proud of your plate, and to see the overall impact that Tennesseans for the Arts has to the health of the arts in Tennessee. As the chair of Arts Advocacy Day 2022, I would like to thank all of our fabulous speakers, Tennesseans for the Arts, Tennessee Arts Commission, and most of all...YOU! Your support is everything!! Now get out there and spread the word. Thank you!
