NEA Chairman Visits Houston for First Time Tomorrow and Will Answer Your Questions About the Future of the NEA

Jane_Chu photo for confirmThe Houston Arts Alliance will be hosting a visit and talk by the new National Endowment For the Arts chairperson Jane Chu tomorrow at the Asia Society. This is Chu’s first visit to Houston, and she’ll follow her talk about her vision for the NEA with a public question-and-answer session.

Chu’s position before her NEA appointment in June was as the president and CEO of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Missouri. She’s a native of Oklahoma and was raised in Arkansas, and got her masters at SMU in Dallas and her PhD in philanthropic studies from Indiana University.

Afterward, Chu will visit Project Row Houses with Rick Lowe. The earlier talk starts at 11:30 am on Wednesday, is free and open to the public (and moderated by Houston Arts Alliance president Jonathon Glus) but space is limited, so go here for info on how to secure your spot.
