We are proud to announce that as of December 2015, stewardship of King County’s Public Art Collection and management of Gallery4Culture is in the capable hands of Jordan Howland!

Jordan has been a member of the 4Culture staff in the role of Public Art Project Manager since 2007. In that time, she has overseen the production of an incredible array of permanent and temporary public artworks, facilitated the Conductive Garboil grant program, moved our application process online, and built Creative Justice, an innovative, arts-based alternative to youth incarceration.

Jordan believes in the power of art and its vital place in community. She has been working as a curator, registrar, and arts administrator for nonprofit, private, and government organizations in the Pacific Northwest for close to two decades. Her experience encompasses a wide range of programming with organizations including the Henry Art Gallery, Microsoft Art Collection, Center on Contemporary Art, William Traver Gallery, Grey Gallery and Lounge, and the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.

We are currently in the midst of an exciting 2015-2016 season at Gallery4Culture, and in the process of selecting King County artists to show in 2016-2017. Make sure to visit the gallery, which is located on the ground floor of our offices at 101 Prefontaine Place South in Pioneer Square, and say hello to Jordan!
