Eileen O’Donnell, Chair of the Arts Council of Greater New Haven Board of Directors, announces the appointment of Daniel Fitzmaurice as our next Executive Director effective March 13, 2017.

Mr. Fitzmaurice comes to the Arts Council from neighboring arts organization Creative Arts Workshop where he has served as Executive Director since 2015.
