Cynthia Campoy Brophy will be stepping down from her role as executive director of artworxLA after 26 years. Founded as The HeArt Project in 1992, artworxLA creates pathways for young people in Los Angeles by tapping into the power of the arts.
In a letter to the artworxLA community announcing her decision, Cynthia noted that she is leaving behind a vibrant community of young people, teaching artists, and educators: “I also leave a powerful network of young people who have gone through our program, proudest when I see how they continue to support and encourage each other after they have graduated. I am grateful to the legions of extraordinary teaching artists who have brought their significant talents into our students’ classrooms to nurture their unique creative voices. Our partner classroom teachers and educators have long known of the effectiveness of the arts in a well-rounded education and I am forever grateful for their partnership.”
