Obama’s NEA Chairman Appointment to be Announced

The New York Times reported late Tuesday that Rocco Landesman is expected to be announced as President Obama’s appointee for Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.  Mr. Landesman is a Broadway producer and the president of Jujamcyn Theatres.  He is described as being known for his “energy, intellect, and irreverent…candor” and is anticipated as a strong voice advocating for increased funding for the arts.  

If his appointment is confirmed by Congress, Mr. Landesman will be replacing Dana Goia who stepped down in January.
