We are delighted to announce our new president, as of February 1, 2016, Andrew D. Hamingson. Here’s what the New York Times said on Monday, December 14:
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council — which runs downtown arts festivals and initiatives, awards grants and is currently expanding its Arts Center at Governors Island — announced Monday that its next president would be Andrew D. Hamingson, who is now the executive director of St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn.
Mr. Hamingson will succeed Sam Miller as the president of the cultural council in February, the group said. The council runs the annual River To River Festival and is planning to begin construction next year on an expanded Arts Center at Governors Island. It said that it had already raised 60 percent of its $3 million fund-raising campaign for the project.
