Alberto Mejia II Named New Dougherty Arts Center Manager

by Bill Davenport September 14, 2014

mejiaAlberto Mejia II is the new manager of the city of Austin’s Dougherty Arts Center. Mejia arrived in Austin this summer from Seattle, where, as a self-described “engaged idealist” he organized youth arts programs for the EMP Museum, a Seattle nonprofit “dedicated to the ideas and risk-taking that fuel contemporary popular culture” and with enough money from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen for an outlandish guitar-inspired Frank Gehry building!

The Dougherty Arts Center (DAC) is a repurposed Marine/Naval reserve training facility rededicated to the Arts in 1978 that offers three programming components – the Dougherty Arts Center Theater, the Julia C. Butridge Gallery and the Dougherty Arts School.
