Best Flack - 2007
Jimmy Castillo of Lawndale Art Center
Sure, most people think this award should go to some city official or corporate PR person, but you'd be surprised how hard it is to find a good publicist in the art world. Our entertainment desk is thankful there are folks like Jimmy Castillo of Lawndale Art Center, who is always quick to return a phone call and send over the information needed to finish a story immediately. We're sure Castillo has plenty of people at Lawndale to thank for making him such a valuable PR tool (especially because his official title is assistant director), but hey, somebody has to take the credit.
What is Best Flack? what does that mean? Art world publicist? Just wondering. BTW Jimmy is too cool for words.
Congratulations Jimmy -- I commented once before but I must have done something wrong. I'm trying again. We're really proud of everything you've accomplished.
Charles and I are so proud that we have another Art preservation hero! Your accomplishments and tenacity will be appreciated for years to come. Thanks again Jimmy and thank God for that chip from the old block!
Cheers! to Jimmy. We are so proud of you. You are so smart and very good looking. Good Luck! Uncle Bill and Aunt Marti
You're great Jim! - Congratulations: Eli, Mom, Dad!
...as they say: The Apple doesn't fall far from the Tree!
Jimmy has just joined the staff at Houston Arts Alliance as Manager for our Conservation and Collections in Civic Art and we are excited about working with him.
