My unexpected journey from painting student at Edna Manley College in Jamaica, to Director of Culture for the State of Connecticut.
Kristina Newman-Scott is the Director of Culture for the State of Connecticut where she oversees all aspects of the state’s programs and services related to art, culture and historic preservation. Prior to this role, Newman-Scott served as Director of Marketing, Events and Cultural Affairs for the City of Hartford, the Director of Programs at the Boston Center for the Arts and Director of Visual Arts at Hartford’s Real Art Ways.
Newman-Scott was a visual artist, arts consultant and popular television/radio personality in Jamaica, where she was born and raised. She became a citizen of this country in 2013 and resides in Hartford with her husband Gordon and their five year old daughter.
