Arts leaders and a conservative policy-maker clashed over President Trump’s plan to do away with federal funding for the arts at  TheWrap’s Power Women Breakfast in Washington DC on Wednesday.

“Do we really want [the] Trump administration influencing art?” asked Romina Boccia, the Grover M. Hermann Research Fellow for budgetary affairs at the Heritage Foundation.

Robin Bronk, CEO of the Creative Coalition, shot back: “We’re talking about the federal government funding arts, not the government making judgments on what is art.”

The panel, “Public Funding for the Arts: The New Priorities,” got heated when Boccia insisted that President Trump should stay out of the arts and that federal funding isn’t necessary for arts to thrive.
