Washington, DC * 10:15AM ET -- As part of the Singapore State Visit, First Lady Michelle Obama and Mrs. Lee Hsien Loong will participate in a spousal event at the National Gallery of the Art.

The event will include a special performance by students from the Turnaround Arts Summer Program. Turnaround Arts is a national program created by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities to help transform some of the nation’s lowest performing schools through comprehensive and integrated arts education.

Since 2011, Turnaround Arts has empowered 68 schools in 27 school districts across 13 states and Washington, DC with innovative arts and music programs to help address broader school challenges and close the achievement gap.
