Image for NEA Chairman Landesman to Step Down at Year End

Nov 20, 2012

National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Rocco Landesman confirmed his plans to step down at the end of the calendar year. “My intention has always been to serve one term, and we have been able to accomplish more than I had ever thought possible: sparking a national movement around creative placemaking, forging significant relationships with other federal agencies, creating an unprecedented healing arts partnership with the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and increasing both the scope and impact of our research office.” NEA Senior Deputy Chairman Joan Shigekawa will serve as the acting head of the agency until a permanent successor is confirmed.
