Hey I'm a New Yorker and I don't drive. But if I lived in California I might consider this unusual way to get arts funding on the road again...
Over to you First Lady Maria Shriver:
Californians have an incredible opportunity to support the arts through the Million Plates Campaign for the Arts coordinated by The California Arts Council.
If one million California drivers purchased an arts license plate, we would raise $40 million. That's $40 million dollars that would go directly to more than 300 groups across our schools and communities.
Think about what our re-commitment to the arts would mean - not just to our children - but to our economy. Creativity and innovation are part of California's fabric, and we can all honor and further that legacy....
While I'm not sure about her celebration of her husband's bodybuilding as "a form of art, self-expression and communication," Madame Schwartzenegger seems onto something about this.
The Million Plates campaign launches Monday in Los Angeles. But plates are available right now by simply going online to artsplate.org.
Can this really work, Kally-fawn-ians?
