Glaza Stepping Down from LB Arts Council

Long Beach – On Jan. 22, the Arts Council for Long Beach Board of Directors announced today that they have reluctantly accepted the resignation of Executive Director John Glaza.

Glaza has been associated with the council for several years, initially as a consultant to the board and grants review panel facilitator.  For the past 30 months he has served as interim executive director and executive director.

During Glaza’s tenure the council:

  • Increased funding to artists and arts organizations
  • Strengthened the financial condition of the institution
  • Created a more inclusive organization with an open nomination process for board members
  • Improved arts education efforts in partnership with LBUSD
  • Expanded access to the arts throughout the City

The council, which turns 40 in two years, was established in 1976 by the City of Long Beach to respond to the needs of the growing local arts community and to develop cultural resources. As the city’s arts agency, it functions as a private 501(c)(3) organization.

The Arts Council’s mission is to foster creativity and culture, enlivening communities and enabling a thriving economy.
