NEA chief tours Hope Artiste Village

February 17, 2011

PAWTUCKET — It had been frigid and icy getting around and the sprawling Hope Artiste Village was the last stop on a tiring, whirlwind tour of Rhode Island's arts scene, but Rocco Landesman, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, still exuded enthusiasm about the people and places he visited.
“Rhode Island gets it,” said Landesman. “It is an arts state. Rhode Island has the most working artists, per capita, than any other state in the country, and what I'm taking back is information showing how the arts can be a model for economic development.”
