PRESIDENT CLINTON NAMES TERRY EVANS TO THE NATIONAL COUNCIL ON THE ARTS
The President today announced his intent to nominate Terry Evans of Kansas to the National Council on the Arts.
Terry Evans is a photographer whose work has been exhibited not only in the Midwest but nationally. Her photographs of the Kansas prairie and rural people have been featured in one-person and group shows and are part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institute, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. She is the arts associate and a member of the Board of Directors of The Land Institute in Salina, Kansas. Ms. Evans earned a B.F.A. from the University of Kansas in 1968.
The National Council on the Arts advises the Chair of the National Endowment for the Arts (who also chairs the Council) on policies, programs and procedures for carrying out the agency's functions, duties and responsibilities; and reviews and makes recommendations to the Chair on applications for grants. The Council also recommends to the President individuals and organizations to receive the National Medal of Arts for outstanding contributions to the arts in America.
