On behalf of the Board of Directors, Inner-City Arts would like to share with our community an important development: Shelby Williams-González has been named Chief Executive Officer. Building on its over thirty-year legacy, the arts education nonprofit will soon welcome the vision and leadership of Williams-González, a native Angeleno who has committed more than 20 years to the fields of art, arts education, and youth empowerment. Williams-González comes to Inner-City Arts as the Executive Director of artworxLA, a fellow youth-centered nonprofit tackling high school dropout rates through art.
Williams-González will begin her transition into the role this spring, with an anticipated full-time start date on June 1st. She will assume the CEO role from COO and Interim Executive Director, George Garcia, who will remain in his executive position leading operations.
A formal announcement will be released mid-May to detail the Board’s search process and to introduce in greater depth the history, expertise, and unique perspective that led to Shelby Williams-González’ invitation to build upon our commitment to serving youth through the arts.
