John Frohnmayer was former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, a program of the United States government. He was appointed by President George H. W. Bush in 1989, and served until 1992. This was a tumultuous time for the agency, "when congress got more mail about the artworks of Robert Mapplethorpe and Andres Serrano than it did about the Savings and Loan Crisis." The Library asked Dr. Frohnmayer, a proponent of the arts and free expression, to provide some thoughts about the importance of the arts especially during this time in history.
