KYTRAD,

It's likely that details of the award presentation are TBA because (a) it is summer in Washington and too hot for folks to make plans for events that are six weeks away, (b) the National Endowment for the Arts remains without a permanent chairman or even a chairman nominee following the sudden death of chairman Livingston Biddle, Jr. last spring, and (c) any planning energies that exist are probably going into the not-yet-announced commemorations of September 11th, which will be extensive especially in Washington and New York.

The Lisner Auditorium often fills up for the NEA heritage award event, and friends who hope to attend should try to get tickets in advance. When I get information on how to do that, I'll post it to this thread or (as Kath suggests above) start a new one.
