Sen. Patrick Leahy Receives Award for Congressional Arts Leadership

Arts Advocacy Day 2008 began with a Congressional Arts Breakfast organized by Americans for the Arts and the Congressional Arts Caucus. In conjunction with The U.S. Conference of Mayors, we presented Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) with the 2008 National Award for Congressional Arts Leadership. Congressional speakers at the breakfast included Reps. Louise Slaugther (D-NY), Betty McCollum (D-MN), Ralph Regula (R-OH), Chris Shays (R-CT), and John Lewis (D-GA).

Leadership, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) joined a delegation of arts
leaders from his home state of Vermont. L–R: Jenny Pelletier,
