"The Million Artist March On the Avenue of the Arts in Philadelphia"
1999-07-17 until 1999-07-17
USA United States of America
The Million Artist March is organized by MAMOTAA, an arts advocacy
group under the non-profit umbrella of Jobs With Peace. MAMOTAAs
goal is to send one million signatures to Congress requesting that art
programs be reinstated in the public school curriculum. We also ask that
art teachers and artists be hired to teach these programs. MAMOTAAs
work will not end in July 17, 1999. We will continue to be an arts
advocacy organization, job bank and information center until Washington
addresses this issue.
The day will begin at 11am with a dance, music and color-filled march
from the Avenue of the Arts to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway where
seven stages will provide music performance and spoken word events.
The Parkway will be lined with tables to sell original art work.
If youre an artist, art student, parent or concerned citizen, come to
Philadelphia to show your support. CELEBRATE for a cause.
