New Hampshire Institute of Art Presents An Evening with Tony Jones
Art + People + Money: Chicago’s cultural and economic engine, Millennium Park: How was a 26-acre wasteland in the heart of downtown Chicago transformed by art and architecture to become such an incredibly successful and popular cultural asset? Tony Jones takes us behind the scenes and tells us the inside story.
NHIA is pleased to invite you to the next event in the Manchester Vision 20/20 speaker series featuring Tony Jones. Jones is widely sought as a consultant and keynote speaker on the role of the arts and education and their cultural and economic impact.
Conferred the title Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth in 2003, Jones holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, six honorary doctorates and an array of international honors. He was presented with the Austrian Knight’s Cross for services to education in Europe, elected an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects and received the Distinguished Service Award of the American Lawyers for the Arts, to mention only a few. He is a former two-term national chairman of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design, a consortium of which Kansas City Art Institute is a member. In 2011, an historic landmark building in downtown Chicago was named Jones Hall in his honor.
Jones is president of the Kansas City Art Institute, president of the Sir James Dyson Educational Foundation in America, co-chair of the Royal College of Art Foundation, and international ambassador of the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts (“Young Arts Miami”).
