New Arts Commissioner

Congrats to Lionell Thomas, who has just been appointed as the new Executive Director of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

Thomas' considerable experience and deep insider knowledge of the DC art scene are alone a great qualifier for this job, but what I like best is that this new Commissioner worked his way up from the bottom to the top.

The State University of New York at Cortland announces a call to artists for a group exhibition at the Dowd Gallery, January 18–March 2, 2012.
