WASHINGTON, DC.- NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman will be in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri over the Thanksgiving weekend. As part of his ongoing Art Works tour – during which he is visiting neighborhoods across the country to see firsthand how art works in different communities and artistic disciplines – he will visit the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts.

Chairman Landesman declared, "I am thankful that we have so many wonderful museums across our country. In the St. Louis area alone, there are some 96 museums employing more than 1,900 people, and each of those is a great example of how art works as an employment sector and as part of the real economy. In addition, museums display great works of art, which can work on us as human beings to inspire and transform us." Chairman Landesman continued, "The Thanksgiving weekend is often a perfect time to visit a museum with a young person."

Chairman Landesman encourages anyone taking a young person to a museum to use Imagine, a free publication available for download from the publications section of www.arts.gov that includes suggestions for making museum visits more fun and intriguing for children. In addition, Imagine also includes suggestions for participating in literature, dance, music, theater, visual arts, folk arts, and media arts with children between the ages of three and eight.
