We are thrilled to announce big news from the Public Art 4Culture team!

Our longest-tenured public art colleague, Jordan Howland, has transitioned into the role of Senior Public Art Project Manager. Jordan is taking on increased responsibilities given her previous work in project management as well as her oversight of both the King County Public Art Collection and Gallery 4Culture.

This shift has created the opportunity to grow other talent on the team too. Guy Merrill has been collaborating with Jordan since 2017 to steward the Collection. He brings this experience—plus more than a decade of previous technical and administrative know-how—to his new role as Collections Manager. Andy Le, who was hired in 2018, will put his background in studio art and art history to good use as he leads the Gallery 4Culture program and works as the Public Art Coordinator. Willow Fox, no stranger to public art or to 4Culture, rejoins the team in the newly established position of Collections Registrar. And finally, Project Manager Selina Hunstiger and Director Kelly Pajek will continue in their current roles.

This reorganization promises to bring forward great things in 2022 and beyond—stay tuned!
