Welcome New Arts & Culture Board Members

The Georgetown Arts & Culture Board bade farewell to four fantastic board members at the February 2020 board meeting. The four board members who completed their two terms include Timothy Fleming, Linda Wilde, Carol Watson, and Laura Sewell. All four outgoing board members were instrumental in developing and expanding the Georgetown Public Art Program and brought such a varied breadth of knowledge, professionalism, and expertise to the board. They will be missed!

The four new members to join the Arts and Culture Board include Jessica Meurer Sobhani, Artist/Muralist and East View High School art instructor; Sonya Robinson, Senior Director of Foundation Relations at Southwestern University; Marissa Elena (Gomez) Palmer, Artist and Senior Risk and Compliance Analyst at HomeAway; Gaby Shultz, Artisan/Founder at Artisans’ Workbench.

Returning board members include Board Chair Jane Estes, Writer and Founder/General Manager at Lark & Owl Booksellers; Sharon Snuffer, Arts Patron and Collector; Susie Flatau, Artist and Vice President of Georgetown Art Works.
