The Utah Division of Arts & Museums is pleased to announce recent staffing changes for our agency. Emily Johnson has been named as our new Field Services Manager, and Em Cebrowski has joined our team as a Program Support Specialist. We are excited for the work both of these individuals will do to help us continue supporting our state’s cultural communities.
