Most of the appreciation for the classical culture came after the American Revolution. America was one of the biggest appreciators of the classical style as “classic colonnades were appended to state capitols and to modest farm houses throughout the land” (“Classic Revival”).

Works such as these, that have lost patronage due to shifting economic classes, require funding from government organizations to stay afloat amongst an audience that values the latest in innovation (INART005).

At the same time, the same amount of equally artistically talented students are left to pay for college themselves because they are not offered as many scholarships as athletes are. This unfair and unequal distribution of scholarships is a threat to college education of artistic students everywhere. It is a problem that occurs at every university in the United States, including Iowa State University, and it is a policy that needs to be changed so that college is an equally beneficial period for athlete and artist alike. 2. Scope In this paper, I will be comparing information about the athletic and artistic scholarships offered at Iowa State University.
These two fascinating periods of architecture can be found everywhere in the United States, they are inspiring today’s generation around the world.

The Neoclassical period was considered the rebirth of the Classical period.
Components of Consumer spending Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the final value of all goods and services produced domestically in a year, minus any trade deficit. It can also be interpreted as the sum of the total spending of its component parts. There are several components of GDP, and those include Consumer Spending (C), commercial and residential Investment Spending, Government Spending, and Net Exports (value of all exports minus the value of all imports). The largest component of GDP is Consumer Spending, totaling about 6.255 trillion dollars in 1999, or sixty seven percent (67%) of GDP. Like GDP, Consumer Spending (here after C) is also determined by several component parts.
Tax supported education was deemed necessary by Thomas Jefferson and many other constituents. Taxation for education was an insurance premium that the wealthy paid for stability and democracy. One important factor that they did not want was ignorance to set in and that is what we would be left with to make our future political office, let alone our future presidents. How can a country run on ignorance? Many cannot afford to send their children to school, so therefore by having taxes cover the cost of school, this would allow many more children and even adults to get an education to better themselves and our economy.
(NC) If these cutbacks are approved this will directly affect Onslow County and every other county in the state.

Federal tax dollars are being used towards non-profit organizations and establishment such as art museums, art centers, orchestras, and other festive events that may take place. The total cost for these displays and showcases of the arts cost about 22.3 billion dollars in annual federal, state, and local tax revenues. Of course, there are people who feel as though this money should be funded elsewhere, but there are also others who feel that the money is being used rationally and reasonably. There are a good number of reasons that support why the federal government should continue its funding to the arts in America. “Ever since the late 1980s, when the performance artist Karen Finley started playing around with yams and chocolate, the National Endowment for the Arts has come under fire from some conservative lawmakers” (N.E.A.
