Cultural Arts Sub-Committee Seeks to Connect City and Arts Providers

Approved by city council a year ago, the Parks and Recreation Commission’s three-member cultural arts subcommittee met Feb. 14 to elect a chair and set a meeting schedule. All members of the sub-committee are members of the Parks and Recreation Commission. Jensen Hallstrom was elected chair of the subcommittee. The next meeting will take place in April and then every other month.

The stated role of the sub-committee is to act as a liaison between the parks and recreation department, the city and local cultural arts providers. Local vendors named at the meeting were the Muckenthaler Cultural Center, Museum Center, Fullerton College, California State University, Fullerton, Fullerton Joint Union High School District and All the Arts for All the Kids.

The intent is to be partners in the local Fullerton arts community, working with professionals and determining how to effectively promote the arts in Fullerton, according to Alice Loya, assistant director of parks and recreation. She said the next meeting in April will be to discuss what each entity is doing and how to organize “…a fact-finding meeting.”

Cindy Collins, director of parks and recreation and acting deputy city manager, said the subcommittee’s work with providers will be to connect the city to their programs, raise awareness of the programs and pool resources. These suppliers will be invited to the April meeting.

The other members of the subcommittee are Ayesha Hussaini and Kathy Lira.
