"Brenson, former New York Times art critic, vividly captures the eloquent verve with which Congress supported the public funding of artists in 1965 and contrasts that with the political climate of 1995, when fellowships of individual artists were ended and nary a person of political or cultural power came to the artists' defense. This examination of one of the most controversial government programs of our time is essential to the discussion of the place of the artist in America."--BOOK JACKET.
