PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT  |  Teaching | NEA/ICA


2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and 2016 marks the 50th anniversary for the Idaho Commission on the Arts (ICA). John McMahon, Artists Services Director for the ICA, in preparation for the upcoming 50th anniversary, was looking through some old and somewhat moldy slides from the 1970s. He came across several slides with the name Susan Dailey and did a web search...

The artist in schools program was funded by the both the NEA and the state arts commissions. Artists applied directly to the state. I heard about the program while I was still in college in 1977 and applied to several states.

Idaho responded and I had the opportunity to participate in three residencies: first in Lewiston (1977), then in Parma (1979) and in Georgetown (1981).

I also participated in two artist residencies through this same program in Nebraska…In the towns of Bassett (1983) and Gordon (1985).

John McMahon was kind enough to clean up and share some of these old slides with me. Stay tuned for more history and photos of ICA projects in 2016 when a special 50th anniversary Facebook site will be activated. Thank you John, for unearthing some memories and for the ICA’s ongoing public support of the arts.
