An Arts Czar for the U.S.?

The idea of a Cabinet-level official for the arts has gotten some buzz lately. A current petition is being circulated in support of the idea and has generated over 100,000 signatures to date. Many other countries have ministers of culture. High-profile artists such as Quincy Jones think it's necessary in the U.S., but not everyone agrees.

Listen to a story from NPR's Morning Edition or read about it in the Washington Post.
