The Pueblo Arts Alliance announces that Daniel Levinson has been hired as Associate Director, effective immediately.
Levinson, a Denver native, earned his Master of Fine Arts from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. He will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of Pueblo Arts Alliance and Pueblo Creative Corridor. Levinson will work with local artists, economic development partners, entrepreneurs and businesses to increase creative industry’s impact on Pueblo’s local economy.
Susan Fries, Executive Director, welcomes the new Associate Director: “Levinson adds a new set of talents to the Arts Alliance executive staff that will expand our support to local creative industries. As well, Levinson’s experience in collaborative projects enhances the impact of the Arts Alliance’s mission.”
Levinson has worked with non-profits, community organizations, museums, galleries and academic institutions around the world. He directed the Holly Square Peace Mural Project, a nationally-recognized redevelopment site in Denver. He and his wife, Pueblo native Cori Levinson, spearheaded an international mural project connecting youth participants from Denver and Bogota, Colombia, sponsored by Intel Computer Clubhouse Network. He is an emerging visual artist whose work has been exhibited internationally and placed in private collections.
“An amazing foundation has been laid before me,” said Levinson. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to help build the house. The house of course would represent the vitality of Pueblo’s creative economy. I will do everything in my power to advance the mission of the Arts Alliance while showcasing how robust, innovative and valuable our house really is.”
