Yesterday, Houston Mayor Annise Parker selected Debbie McNulty as the new Director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (MOCA) to replace Minnette Boesel, who is resigning the position effctive December 4.
On-her-way-out-Mayor Parker has been working to get some sort of arts plan in place before she goes away. Parker named McNulty to the position after she helped to steer the exhausting City’s Arts and Cultural Plan. While Boesel has led MOCA for seven years and served as lead consultant for the plan, McNulty was heavily involved in the process. McNulty is not only a working artist, but was also program officer of Houston Endowment for over 6 years and executive director Art League Houston for almost four years.
Congratulations, Debbie McNulty! (And, of course, we’ll be watching your every move.) Go do good work!
