Shareable Graphics & Ads
In early 2017, Americans for the Arts launched a suite of ads and a social media campaign, #SavetheNEA, to showcase the importance and value of federal funding for the arts. Ad placements began the first week of March in The Hill, NY Daily Post, and Palm Beach Daily News, and continued for Arts Advocacy Day in The Hill, Politico, and Roll Call, reaching a combined audience of nearly 600,000 print readers, as well as more than 500,000 people on Facebook.
In May, Americans for the Arts developed localized ads designed to reach representatives on the House Interior Appropriations Committee and Republican Senate leaders as they were home on recess, illustrating NEA support in their state or district. Combined, these two series of targeted ads reached 1.3 million readers in 21 papers across the nation. You can find each of these tailored, state-specific ads for Alaska, California, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, New Jersey, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia on those state pages.
We hope you help us spread the message of this mobilization campaign by downloading these ads and graphics for use online, on social media, or in print.
While we encourage you to download these ads and share them either electronically or in print, please note we cannot accommodate any re-sizing requests or logo placements. Please also do not alter any of the artwork or remove the Americans for the Arts logo.
