Jennifer Lasik is the City’s new Cultural Arts Coordinator. This new position was authorized by the City Council earlier this year in response to recommendations in the evanstARTs community arts road map report generated by a community dialogue sponsored by the Evanston Community Foundation, Evanston Arts Council and the City of Evanston.

Ms. Lasik comes to Evanston from the City of Kemmerer, Wyo., where she had served as director of cultural arts and events since 2008. 

“Jennifer has an outstanding track record of community engagement. Her work in Kemmerer brought people together from all walks of life and involved them in the arts. Jennifer has an enthusiasm and passion for her work that will be contagious throughout Evanston,” said City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz.
