FILE- In this April 1, 2003, file photo, Dana Gioia, new chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, is interviewed by the Associated Press in Washington. The NEA, which the Trump administration wants to eliminate, developed in uniquely American fashion: diverse and independent, with a significant part of the budget distributed to state and local organizations. Gioia, who headed the NEA from 2003-2009, says the endowment has managed to use relatively little money to build a nationwide arts network. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
