Gov. Evers appoints Rafael Francisco Salas to Wisconsin Arts Board

Gov. Tony Evers has appointed Professor of Art Rafael Francisco Salas to the Wisconsin Arts Board, the state agency responsible for the support and development of the arts throughout Wisconsin.

Salas’ work has been exhibited in New York City, San Diego, Boston and venues in the Midwest, including Neville Public Museum, Museum of Wisconsin Art, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Dean Jensen Gallery, Circa Gallery and Frank Juarez Gallery. He is represented by Portrait Society Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In addition, Salas has worked as an arts writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Urban Milwaukee and Newcity Art in Chicago.

“We welcome Mr. Salas to the Arts Board and look forward to working with him,” said George Tzougros, executive director of the Wisconsin Arts Board. “Mr. Salas joins a strong board of directors and staff team, and as an artist and educator, he brings important experience and insights to our work.”

The Wisconsin Arts Board is governed by a 15-member board appointed by the governor to serve three-year terms. Board members are Wisconsin citizens recognized for their accomplishments in the arts, humanities, business, education or public service. The board includes members from urban and rural areas across the state and from diverse racial, economic and cultural backgrounds. Board members set policy for the agency and approve funding recommendations made by the peer review panels. The members meet a minimum of four times per year, and all meetings are open to the public.
