Obama Nominates Tom Rothman to National Council on the Arts

Tom Rothman has been nominated by President Obama to fill a slot on the National Council on the Arts, which oversees the National Endowment for the Arts.

Rothman, chairman of TriStar Prods., has been a bundler and contributor to Obama’s presidential campaigns.

The National Council on the Arts has 18 members, and six members from Congress who serve in ex-officio capacities. Members serve six-year terms and include jazz musician Irvin Mayfield, an Obama appointee, and Lee Greenwood, appointed by President George W. Bush.

The council is charged with advising the chairman of the NEA and reviews and makes recommendations on applications for grants and funding guidelines.

The NEA has been led by Joan Shigekawa, its senior deputy chair, since the departure of Rocco Landesman at the end of last year. Obama has yet to nominate a successor.
