White House's arts committee


I thought this was interesting to learn: President Obama appointed "private citizens" to the President's Committee of Arts and Humanities. His appointees include Anna Wintour, Sarah Jessica Parker, Edward Norton, Yo-Yo Ma, and Teresa Heinz-Kerry, to name a few of the 24 total. Also not surprisingly Michelle Obama is honorary chair. The mission on the website is pretty obvious- in short, the promotion and education of the arts and humanities through several foundations.

I am not sure who the 19 members are...who do you think should be on this committee?
