National Endowment for the Arts, Washington, DC.; National Council on the Arts (NFAH), Washington, DC.
This document describes the activities and programs of several national agencies for the arts. It discusses the following branches of the arts: architecture, dance, education, literature, music, public media, theatre, and visual arts. It also discusses the financial status of these agencies and public and private contributions to their funds. In the field of literature, the program in support of poets who work in schools reinforcing the teaching of English was expanded. The Poets in Developing Colleges Program has placed black writers in residence on campuses, primarily in Southern states, and the program has helped to produce good student poets. The Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines has made 203 grants to 152 magazines and has organized 21 activities intended to improve the content, production, and distribution of non-commercial literary magazines. Discovery Awards were made to 41 young or relatively unknown writers who were regarded as having exceptional talent. In the field of education, the Visual Artists-in-Residence Project placed artists in six schools, and the Artists-in-the-Schools program utilized 300 dancers, musicians, poets, theatre artists, painters, and sculptors in bringing the arts directly to elementary and secondary school students in 31 states.
