Mana Contemporary Plans Protest Against Plan to Defund the NEA
Following news last month of a Trump administration proposal that would defund the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, Mana Contemporary, the cultural center with spaces in Chicago and Jersey City, New Jersey, is planning a protest. A series of performances, exhibition openings, and events are being planned for Mana’s Jersey City and Chicago spaces on Sunday, April 30. At the events, Mana will encourage attendees to sign a petition arguing that the Trump administration’s budget proposal is “dangerous,” and that “arts and cultural industries are a prosperous source for job creation.”
