Quincy Jones and two other New York artists have started a petition now signed by more than 76,000 to ask Obama to create a cabinet position for the arts. In December, 15 organizations joined Americans for the Arts in petitioning the Obama-Biden transition team to stop the fragmentation of cultural policy. The establishment of a Cabinet office would take the approval of Congress. A dedicated office in the West Wing would be up to the president.
