About this Event
Jane Chu combines her academic research and professional practice in the arts with philanthropy and business administration. In 2014, she was appointed to serve as the 11th chairperson of the National Endowment for the Arts, completing her term in June 2018. Chu is also a visual artist, a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at Indiana University, and has served as an arts advisor for Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).
During her 4-year tenure at the National Endowment for the Arts, Chu traveled to 50 U.S. states and four countries, 200 communities and made more than 400 site visits to meet with artists and arts leaders, government and civic leaders, philanthropists and the general public. The NEA awarded $430 million over the four years to support the arts in 16,000 communities covering 50 states, U.S. jurisdictions, and in every Congressional District.
