In case you missed Tuesday’s online chat with members of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, the White House has posted a rather lengthy video from the interactive event in which the public was invited to pose questions about the country’s arts policy and other cultural issues to committee members.

The video, running 47 minutes, features artist Chuck Close, dancer Damian Woetzel, producer George Stevens Jr. and committee co-chair Margo Lion fielding questions from the online public.

Due to the somewhat windy responses of some committee members, the session wasn’t able to cover much ground in the allotted window of time. Questions tended to focus on arts education and how teachers can use the arts in the daily classroom environment.

You can watch the video in its entirety above.
