Michelle Obama Advocates for Arts Education

Yesterday, first lady Michelle Obama visited New York City to promote the arts, celebrating opening night at the American Ballet Theater and the reopening of part of the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In her speech at the event she discussed the importance of arts education and said, “The president and I want to ensure that all children have access to great works of art.” Great step for arts education!
