Ayanna Hudson joins NEA from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission
Washington, DC—In 2011, the National Endowment for the Arts awarded more than $13 million in funding through its arts education program. Beginning on July 2, that significant level of support will be guided by Ayanna Hudson, the agency’s new director of arts education. Hudson joins the NEA from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission where she led the commission’s lauded Arts for All regional collaborative designed to return arts to the core curriculum. Chairman Rocco Landesman made the announcement today at a national forum sponsored by the Arts Education Partnership.
