Daly Dose of the Arts [video]

The Creative Coalition's Tim Daly on the state of the arts in America

On Friday, April 30, The Creative Coalition, “a nonprofit, nonpartisan social and political advocacy organization” comprised of members of the entertainment industry, came to Washington for a variety of functions, including a congressional luncheon. That evening, several of its members attended a private dinner held at Floriana Restaurant on 17th St. NW.

Attendees included Cheryl Hines, Adrian Grenier, Omar Epps, Gloria Rubens, Richard Schiff, Stephen Weber and co-presidents Dana Delany and Tim Daly.

Daly took a few minutes from his dinner to answer a few questions regarding the coalition’s mission and the need for strong arts programming in America.
