We are so happy to share the news that Larry Mizell Jr. is our new Digital Media Specialist for the Office of Arts & Culture! You may know Larry from his “My Philosophy” column in the The Stranger, and his Sunday night hip-hop show on KEXP. In addition he has worked social media for a number of musicians and projects, directed music videos and more. He’s going to bring a great skill set to our Office, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the team.
In this position, Larry will promote and highlight the public benefit of the artistic expression found in the City of Seattle through digital projects. He has been advocating for Seattle arts for years and been instrumental in cultivating community online, founding popular local music forums and blogs. He is probably always listening to and thinking about music—but when not online, writing or DJing, he enjoys food, travel, being near water, and playing with his dog.
