Best Local Arts Administrator

David Hoyt Johnson
Tucson/Pima Arts Council

STAFF PICK: Gentlemanly David Johnson has a tough job overseeing the public art program for the city and county, but he calmly and ably negotiates the inevitable crossfire between politicians and artists. Knowledgeable and hard-working, Johnson is careful to put every single project, from bus stop to art bridge, through a rigorous series of public meetings. Obviously artists--and the public--don't always agree with the final choices that the selection panels make; but complaints against Johnson are almost non-existent. Artists who do get the commissions praise him for his insistence on giving artists due public credit; and artists who don't get the commissions praise him for his helpful post-mortems on their presentations. And he gets high marks from all for his ethics.
