Jane Chu, Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, is making her first official trip to North Carolina this month. The North Carolina Arts Council is partnering with us to host a public event in her honor on August 21, from 6-7 pm on the second floor of 67 Broadway.
Chairman Chu will be traveling thru Burnsville - Penland then off to Greensboro, Winston Salem, Chapel Hill to get a breadth of what's happening in the NC cultural community. We're the selected site for the only public meeting in the state. Chairman Chu will make remarks on the public value of the arts, followed by a conversation with Wayne Martin, Executive Director of the North Carolina Arts Council. The NC Arts Council is sending out an official announcement tomorrow.
This event is free and open to the public, yet limited seating is available. To get a jump on registration if you're free after the eclipse, click here: https://neameeting.eventbrite.com
