Welcome Our Newest Staff Member

Brian Hyunsuk Lee, CNY Arts Regrants Program Officer, is a graduate of Wesleyan University with a B.A. in Music and Neuroscience and an M.A. in Performance Curation.

Before joining CNY Arts, he worked in nonprofit fundraising and arts administration in Chicago, IL. There, he produced and helped to curate dance and performance festivals that centered on queer and Asian American artists. He is a passionate advocate for diversity and equity in the arts. In his free time, Brian is a professional and volunteer choral singer and an avid woodworker.

Brian said: "I'm excited to be a part of the CNY Arts team where I can work with a broad, diverse constituency of artists and arts programmers. Having been on the other side of the table myself as a performance producer, fundraiser, and applicant for grant funds, I hope I can make the grants process more equitable and more accessible to all the deserving arts and cultural projects in our region."
