National Council on the Arts meets tomorrow!
March 25, 2010
Tomorrow morning the NEA will host the public session of the 169th meeting of the National Council on the Arts (NCA) from 9:00-10:45 am. The agenda includes the swearing in of jazz musician Irvin Mayfield as the newest?and perhaps youngest ever!?NCA member, followed by a tribute to the late Bess Lomax Hawes who inaugurated and built the NEA?s Folk and Traditional arts program. Research Director Sunil Iyengar also will present findings from the newly released 2008 Survey on Public Participation in the Arts. And finally Rocco will share some highlights from the stops he?s made so far on the Art Works tour. Take a look at the complete agenda here .
