Art is Thriving in Mass.

By Tyler York

Emerson was recently visited by Rocco Landesman, the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. Rocco is on a nationwide tour for an NEA initiative called Art Works. The tour is designed to highlight the great work taking place in the arts all around the country. I have no doubt that Rocco was impressed with what he heard and saw while in Massachusetts because the arts are thriving here!

During his visit to Emerson, he received a tour of our fantastic theatre venues and met with artistic directors from around the state. Emerson students, staff, and faculty were invited to observe the meeting and had the opportunity to ask questions of these great artistic minds. I’ll share my thoughts on the meeting later… for now, read what Rocco had to say of his visit on the Art Works blog.
