June 1, 2008

This publication highlights the synergy of collaborations the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH) forged with each of the cultural agencies—NEA, NEH, and IMLS  between 2001-2008, opening new opportunities for international cultural relations from expanding programs with Mexico to catalyzing groundbreaking initiatives with China to launching new programs like AFI Project: 20/20. In addition, the book documents how the PCAH moved the White House interests forward in youth arts and humanities learning by expanding Coming Up Taller, in preservation by raising the profile of Save America’s Treasures, and in special initiatives like the National Medals by making it a White House signature event.
