Clinton bows culture project

President Clinton announced Friday the launch of the White House Millennium Project, a two-year effort at showcasing America’s history in science, scholarship and culture.

The National Endowment for the Arts will contribute $5.9 million toward the project, which will include a photographic survey of the United States at the turn of the century. The NEA will fund a total of 29 Millennium-related projects, including the commissioning of jazz and dance pieces.

In addition, the National Endowment for the Humanities will set aside money for the preservation of historic U.S. documents and also sponsor a series of White House lectures. First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to take a leading role in the effort.
