The National Endowment for the Arts is offering money to cities for urban revitalization in connection with the arts. NEA Chair Rocco Landesman recently visited Miami and toured arts facilities in several neighborhoods (great coverage on Urbanista), and the vision and money are real. Just make sure your city applies, statement of interest due March 15. (NEA is also running a competition for a new logo.)
Mark your calendar! The Knight Foundation (the same one that generously helps fund this blog) Arts Challenge ideas competition opens on February 19. What will your architecture-related idea be?
