LLB Hosts Senator Jack Reed and NEA Chairman Jane Chu

August 18, 2014 - We were so pleased to host Senator Reed and Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Jane Chu as they toured design firms in the Design Exchange during their visit to Pawtucket. This trip was the first for Chairman Chu who took over as the head of the NEA in June. During her visit, Senator Reed led her through Pawtucket, Providence, and East Providence where they were able to see first hand how the State focuses on its arts and design culture and arts education as a way of boosting the local economy. Chris and Kathy gave Chairman Chu and Senator Reed a tour of our office and a glimpse of the work we are doing. Earlier in the day the group visited other design firms in the Design Exchange, solidifying the Design Exchange's important role in the arts and design community of Pawtucket and Providence.
