As director of museums, visual arts, and indemnity at the National Endowment for the Arts, Wendy Clark, ’83, certainly has an impressive title. But that title does not guarantee a large work space. Clark’s cubicle is modern and contemporary, though, and impressive by Washington, D.C., standards. Clark has worked for the NEA more than 20 years. She now puts her art history classes, rather than her political science major, to work helping museums secure matching grants for exhibits, care for collections, and get insurance for art pieces.
“We’ve helped millions of Americans see work they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.”
When Michigan Alumnus visited Clark, we saw that her desk is a reflection of her personality and her passions.
