Americans for the Arts presents the 27th Annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy on Monday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Concert Hall of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. This year's lecture is delivered by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, with introductions by Alec Baldwin.

Maureen Dowd, winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary, became a columnist on The New York Times Op-Ed page in 1995 after having served as a correspondent in the paper's Washington bureau since 1986. She has covered four presidential campaigns and served as White House correspondent. She also wrote a column, "On Washington," for The New York Times Magazine. Ms. Dowd joined The New York Times as a metropolitan reporter in 1983. She began her career in 1974 as an editorial assistant for The Washington Star, where she later became a sports columnist, metropolitan reporter and feature writer. When the Star closed in 1981, she went to Time magazine. Born in Washington D.C., Ms. Dowd received a B.A. degree in English literature from Catholic University (Washington, D.C.) in 1973.

Joining Maureen Dowd for the performance portions of the lecture are Zan McLeod & Celtic Borders (Patrick Cavanagh, Katie Davis Henderon, and Alex Boatright) and YoungArts alumni dancers (Declan Crowley, Kiera Daley, Ashley Smith, and Kieran Coleman).

In addition to remarks by Mauren Dowd, speakers also include Alec Baldwin; Bob Lynch, President & CEO of Americans for the Arts President; and Abel Lopez, Chair of the Board of Americans for the Arts and Associate Producing Director of GALA Hispanic Theater.
