    I know many artists, myself included, who paint and draw for the sake of art, not commerce.

    Define limited. What level of Government? What art gets these redistributed funds?

    If you don't like the government spending money on public goods, you're more than welcome to leave the country and go someplace where the free market rules all. China, perhaps? Maybe Somalia?

    There is a Constitutional power for the funding & keeping of a military. There's No such power given to the federal government to confiscate money to redistribute to someone for purposes of funding artistic endeavors.

    That explains why art is useful, enjoyable and valuable. It does not address the issue of whether confiscated funds should be used to fund it. That is the question.
