According to a recent report by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, titled The Heart of the Matter, the focus of Humanities education and funding has declined greatly, while funding for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) has increased markedly within the past few years (Sciences, 2013). The National Endowment for the Arts, Survey of Public Participation in the Arts indicates that attendance to and participation in cultural and humanities programs has decreased significantly, (NEA, 2009). These reports are the premise upon which Vanessa Chappelear has designed her poster.
