Notable Quotable: Jane Chu on the 50th Anniversary

"America is recognized throughout the world as a place where the size of your dreams is limited only by your imagination. Where creativity can inspire new and impossible things, and where self-expression thrives without restriction. This is what has allowed our cultural landscape to flourish, and to bloom so vibrantly. The National Endowment for the Arts is here to nourish those dreams, that creativity, and that expression. It has been a remarkable 50 years, and we look forward to an equally remarkable future." -NEA Chairman Jane Chu, speaking about the NEA's 50th anniversary at the National Press Club
