Thanks, Secret Santa, for the job upgrade

Christmas came a little early for Elizabeth Dunbar, with the present of a promotion landing on her desk at Arthouse. The visual-arts organization's first full-time curator – you can thank her for getting Okay Mountain to the Pulse Contemporary Art Fair in Miami this year and for "Matt Stokes: these are the days," "Fritz Haeg: Attack on the Front Lawn," "Florian Slotawa: One After the Other," and several other cool Arthouse exhibitions over the past three years – is now going to be its associate director/curator. Her responsibility for shows and public programs will remain the same, but she'll be taking on some management duties, presumably off the plate of ever-busy Director Sue Graze. Also getting a job upgrade is Jennifer Gardner, who is now special projects manager, and joining the Arthouse team is Jennifer Wijangco, formerly of the Texas Cultural Trust, who's been hired as director of development. Merry Christmas, y'all!
