Why Wells Fargo?..


Really Wells Fargo? Your ad campaign asking young people to move from a career in the arts to anything else is insulting. I have been a loyal customer since 2003 and I am an art teacher in a public school. We are fighting against narrow-minded views on the Arts all the time, it is sad to see I am up against my own bank as well. Have y'all never heard of Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, George Lucas, Jay Z, Gwen Stefani, Mikhail Baryshnikov, John Williams, Elton John, Sir Sean Connery...just to name a few. All highly successful artist/business entrepreneurs. Please think about addressing the "future of tomorrow" in a way that includes the arts in a more positive light. Unless, of course you are getting them ready for a future that does not include graphic designers, architects, car designers, actors, musicians, fashion designers, video game designers, dancers, writers, web designers, engineers, movie makers...need I go on?

Thank you,
Lee Darter
