Would Sylvester Stallone ‘Make ART Great Again’?
Wouldn’t that just tick off the cast of ‘Hamilton‘?
Trump is considering Stallone as the head of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Sources have told DailyMail.com the president-elect sees Hollywood icon Stallone as the perfect choice to make art great again.
The likely position would be Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency that doles out funds to aspiring artists and creative projects.
If Stallone is formally offered that job, his appointment will have to be approved by Congress.
While Stallone is positively disposed to the idea, It is not known whether Stallone will accept the gig.
He has spoken previously of his admiration for Trump – and of his interest in entering politics.

…Formed in 1965, The National Endowment for the Arts is an independent federal agency that funds, promotes, and supports everything from museums and opera to folk music, dance and design. Its current head, the artist and philanthropist Jane Chu, heads a 14-strong board who can draw upon an annual budget of around $146,200,000.
