Danielle Brazell transitioned Arts for LA from an ad-hoc steering committee comprised of local executive arts leadership to a highly visible arts advocacy organization. During her tenure as executive director, Arts for LA has surveyed candidates running for election in each Arts for All district, built an online communications infrastructure that allows for a greater exchange of information and resources among the arts and arts education community, and, with strong input from the field, launched a policy platform to guide the field’s collective advocacy. She brings over twenty years of experience to the field. Danielle is the recipient of numerous grant awards, including the 2000 Getty Fellowship, a 2009 CLEAR Communications Fellowship sponsored by the James Irvine Foundation, a 2010 SHero Award from CA State Senator Curren D. Price, a 2009 Leadership LA Fellowship, and she currently participates in California Leadership with a generous scholarship from The Boeing Corporation. Danielle represents Arts for LA on the Policy Committee of the California Alliance for Arts Education and serves on the Board of Directors for California Arts Advocates.
