Mayor to announce head of Arts and Culture

We hear that Mayor Nutter is set to announce the head of the reinstated Office of Arts and Culture tomorrow morning. The official title of the new appointee will be Chief Cultural Officer.

The city shut down the Office of Arts and Culture in 2004. The Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, along with other arts groups, have been pushing to have it reopened.

No word yet on who the new arts czar is, but we hear it could be an out of towner.
