- Budd Schulberg (center) and the Watts Writers' Workshop, Los Angeles, 1965. Photo: Los Angeles Times. In September 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed legislation that would establish the National Endowment for the Arts, the largest arts funder in the United States. In March of this year, President Trump proposed its elimination. While any immediate action has been forestalled, the threat to thousands of community organizations, museums, artists, and projects that benefit from NEA grants still looms. In light of this, Artforum asked five distinguished artists and critics to reflect on the NEA's vital impact in our summer issue: Johnie Scott, who was a co-founder of the Watts Writers' Workshop, an early NEA grant recipient; Barbara Rose, who was on the inaugural committee for awarding NEA artists' grants; Maya Lin, whose Vietnam Veterans Memorial came out of an NEA competition; Ed Ruscha, who received one of the first NEA artist grants; and Ian Volner, who discusses how the current Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. was once the Old Post Office, an architectural preservation cause of the NEA.
