July 13, 2006
Washington, D.C. -- The National Council on the Arts, the Presidentially-appointed advisory body of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), will meet in a public session on Friday, July 14 in Room M-09 of The Nancy Hanks Center, 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
In addition to agency updates, votes on funding recommendations, and guidelines review, there will be two presentations in honor of the agency's 40th anniversary; one on visual arts and another on the agency's support of arts education. The presentations, part of a series conducted at NCA meetings throughout the Arts Endowment's anniversary year, explain the wide and lasting impact the agency has had on each of the fields that it funds.
The National Council on the Arts advises the Chairman of the NEA, who also chairs the Council, on agency policies and programs. Members of the council are Presidential appointments and are selected for their widely recognized knowledge of the arts or their expertise or profound interest in the arts. There are 14 members in addition to the chairman and six ex-officio members from Congress.
