LOS ANGELES — Mayor Eric Garcetti today announced the appointment of Daniel Tarica as General Manager of the Department of Cultural Affairs.

“Daniel is a leader with a track record of delivering and increasing access to art, music, and culture in every corner of Los Angeles,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “I commend Daniel’s efforts to help raise funds and resources and look forward to seeing what he does to deepen the work of the Department of Cultural Affairs, cementing our city’s role as the creative capital of the world.”

Daniel Tarica has served the City of Los Angeles for over 20 years, and is currently the interim General Manager of the Department of Cultural Affairs.

As General Manager of the Department of Cultural Affairs, Tarica will oversee all programs and services managed by the department to maximize relationships with other city agencies, artists, and cultural nonprofits to provide excellent service in neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles.

“I am honored and thrilled by this appointment to lead the City’s Department of Cultural Affairs to use arts and culture to promote creativity and healing, encourage community belonging, and support an inclusive City for all,” said Daniel Tarica. “In partnership with the Department’s dedicated and talented employees, we will continue to engage L.A.’s residents and visitors through the arts and ensure our city’s diverse cultures are recognized, acknowledged, and experienced.”
