NEA Launches Initiative to Support Governors' Leadership in Design

The National Endowment for the Arts has launched a new initiative to support gubernatorial leadership in good community design and planning. Created in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Governors' Institute on Community Design will consist of quarterly workshops pairing government officials with top planning experts in order to identify and create innovative development strategies that result in successful communities.

The newly formed institute, headed by former Governors Christine Todd Whitman of New Jersey and Parris N. Glendening of Maryland, will be modeled after the NEA's highly successful Mayors' Institute on City Design that encourages government leaders to capitalize on their roles as chief "designers."

"For 20 years, the NEA has championed excellence in public design at a city level through our Mayor's Institute," says NEA Chairman Dana Gioia. "Today we are delighted now to expand our program to the state level with the Governors' Institute."
