Thom Mayne: Obama Arts Advisor

New, 9 comments

We never thought we'd put Pritzker Prize winning architect Thom Mayne and Sarah Jessica Parker in the same sentence, let alone serving on the same Arts Committee for President Obama, but politics makes strange, well, you know. The White House has announced the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, and Mayne and Parker join Vogue's Anna Wintour, CAA's Bryan Lourd, and cellist Yo-Yo MA, among others. The PCAH's mission is to advance "the White House's arts and humanities objectives by working directly with the three primary cultural agencies – National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)."
