NEA head to resign

Wasington Post - National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Jane Chu said in a statement that she will resign June 4, after four years at the head of the federal arts agency.

The Trump administration has twice targeted the NEA for elimination, but Chu made no reference to this turbulence in her statement, saying only that it has been an “honor and privilege” to serve as the agency’s chairwoman. The NEA awards millions of dollars in competitive grants to hundreds of arts groups annually.
