The LA Times reports the following:
National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Rocco Landesman was in L.A. this month as part of a six-month Art Works tour in which he is trying to see how art works in communities across the country.
Now, Landesman is back in Washington, D.C., and if you want to find out what he thought of his trip, log on Friday and watch a live webcast of the next meeting of the NEA's advisory body, the National Council on the Arts. (The proceedings start at 9 a.m. in the East, which means 6 out here, so you may need to set your alarm. Go to www.arts.gov and select the Art Works blog.)
The council's sessions are open to the public, but this will be the first one that is viewable online. The webcast as well as Landesman's cross-country travels are part of an effort to "connect the NEA with Americans wherever they are," says an agency spokeswoman.
