Dallas Gets A New Arts District Chief
The choice to replace Veletta Lill as the head of Dallas' downtown arts haven is a familiar face: Catherine Cuellar, a member of the city's Cultural Affairs Commission and a former reporter at KERA.
Catherine Cuellar, a member of Dallas' Cultural Affairs Commission, has been hired as the new executive director of the Dallas Arts District. She replaces Veletta Forsythe Lill, who retired in October. As the head of the Arts District, Cuellar will be charged with marketing the district, coordinating events featuring its many arts groups and boosting its economic development.
