Congratulations to arts advocate Rhoda Glickman who is New York-bound as the new head of Film, Arts & Cultural Development for the great State of New York. Glickman isn’t abandoning DC altogether – she’ll come home on weekends – but the chance to rejoin her old boss Governor Andrew Cuomo, and be immersed in the world of film, art and culture was too good to pass up.
Currently the Director for Government Relations for the Corporation for National and Community Service, Glickman’s new gig will focus on boosting jobs as well as growing and supporting New York State’s already successful film and arts world.
A longtime supporter of funding for the arts, Glickman spent 14 years as Executive Director of the bi-partisan Congressional Arts Caucus, advising members on federal funding for the arts.
You can count on lots of movie talk at the Glickman family dinner– husband Dan Glickman is the former president of the Motion Picture Association of America, son Jon produced “Rush Hour” and is president of MGM Studios, and daughter Amy is a PR Consultant in NY.
