Tony Award winner Kevin Spacey will deliver the 24th Annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy on April 4 at 6:30pm in the Concert Hall at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The open-to-the-public address is part of 2011 Arts Advocacy Day events, presented by Americans for the Arts.

The annual lecture is named for Nancy Hanks, former president of Americans for the Arts and chairman of the NEA, who devoted 15 years of her professional life to bringing arts to prominent national consciousness. It is intended to stimulate dialogue on policy and social issues affecting the arts.

Spacey won the Tony for Lost in Yonkers and was Tony-nominated for The Iceman Cometh. Among his film credits is his Oscar-winning turn in American Beauty. He is the artistic director of the Old Vic, and as previously announced, will star in the title role of Richard III as part of the 2012 Bridge Project season.
