The Director's Series: Michael Govan and Rocco Landesman
LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director Michael Govan talks with National Endowment for the Arts chairman Rocco Landesman about the NEA's agenda, including the Our Town grants that provide more than $6.5 million in funding to support the arts as an integral part of revitalizing communities. The discussion explores the NEA’s recent research on arts engagement and the impact of declining art education on public participation in the arts, as well as Chairman Landesman’s interest in theater and country music. The NEA is the largest national annual funder of the arts in the U.S., awarding more than $4 billion since it was established in 1965 and nearly $139 million in 2010.
