SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: GOVERNOR JAY INSLEE APPOINTS YOURS TRULY TO THE ARTSWA BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS!

BREAKING NEWS!  THIS JUST IN.  EXTRA, EXTRA...READ ALL ABOUT IT....

I had just returned home from a long day of caring for a friend and purchasing art supplies for the African Diaspora Art and Fashion Show, when I stopped to open my email in a moment of exhale.  All I saw were the words, "DEAR JOLYN, CONGRATULATIONS!"

The rest was a blur for the first few minutes.  After coming to, I realized that the email was sent in congratulations for my appointment to the ArtsWA Board of Commissioners.

I met Karen Haran, the Executive Director for the ArtsWA,  at the Cultural Congress, a regional arts conference while I was presenting on The Art of Critical Thinking.  We spoke afterwards and then had a follow up virtual coffee date to discuss my personal mission, what ArtsWA does and how I could be a part of their work.

Anyway, the rest is history.  I just need a moment to reflect.  After setting out to blog about the art in my day for 31 days back in 2012, entering my first art exhibition that same year, declaring an international art mission and teaching art in Ghana last year, speaking at my first arts conference, and producing a Social Justice Art Camp for teens next month, it has all come to this...I am so humbled.

It has definitely been a journey.  Blogging about THE ART OF GREATNESS, THE ART OF PERMISSION, THE ART OF CLARITY, THE ART OF THE LEAP, THE ART OF PRESENTING A FULL SELF, and even various insights on THE ART OF THE LAUNCH when it comes to new ventures, has allowed me to see me clearly.  Thank you to those who have come along with me on this journey.  I don't even think we've reached the halfway mark yet...  

I start my official duties next month at my orientation in Eastern Washington.  I am so honored and excited to advocate for the arts in Washington!  It's a three year term and I plan to give it my all!

Commissioner, Gardner Campbell...signing off...LOL!

What would role would you like to see the government play in the arts , whether local, state or federal?  Tell me in the comments.  Let's take art to the next level together!
