One reason for the lack of response is apathy. It is no longer the "topic" of the day, and many people no longer see it as a big problem. Most people in the United States want to believe that there not really a censorship of art, or at least if there was, that it is over now because of all the protest. The fact still remains that as far as the US Government is concerned, the only realy agency funding the arts (as if this small amount could be considered funding) is the NEA and look where it's been and and where it's going - or not!
Having lived in Germany for six years and still exhibiting my photography there and in other European countries, I am made so aware of how these governments support artists and the arts in general. Hopefully Ms. Bright's publication will make the need for change in this area in the United States even clearer.
