Joe Lamond for vice president? Not quite, though he'll be at both political conventions. NAMM, in partnership with the Americans for the Arts Action Fund, announced yesterday it will host two events at the national political conventions designed to encourage support for and awareness of the importance of arts and arts education. Both events are part of ArtsVote2008, a national initiative created by the Americans for the Arts Action Fund to promote the arts during the presidential election. Americans for the Arts Action Fund is the nation's only grassroots advocacy organization committed to ensure that candidates for public office adopt thoughtful arts policies.
