        Congratulations to Danielle Brazell for her appointment by Governor Newsom as the Executive Director of the California Arts Council!

        We are thrilled with the appointment of Danielle Brazell. Her selection signals that the Newsom administration clearly values the impact of Arts & Culture and its contributions to state government. We are grateful to the Governor for his steadfast support of the creative industry and to Ms. Brazell for her leadership stepping into this position at such a pivotal moment. She has the experience, the passion, and the strategic acumen to lead the agency and to support the critical work of the Arts & Culture ahead. We look forward to our continued partnership with the CAC under Brazell’s leadership!

        We also congratulate the newly selected CAC Chair: Roxanne Messina Captor and Vice Chair Leah Goodwin. We thank them both for their service and look forward to supporting their leadership. Finally, we want to thank outgoing ED Jonathan Moscone and former-Chair Chelo Montoya for their stewardship and for their commitment to advancing the mission of the agency.
