미국 문화예술 정책을 관장하는 미 국립예술위원회 위원에 한국계 에밀 강 노스캐롤라이나대학 예술학교 교수(44)가 8일 선출됐다.

버락 오바마 미국 대통령은 “중요한 자리에 경험 많고 헌신적인 인물을 영입해 기쁘다”고 밝혔다. 에밀 강은 뉴욕에서 태어난 재미교포 2세로 로체스터대학에서 경제학을 전공했다. 그는 노스캐롤라이나대 예술관의 공연 기획과 운영을 총괄하면서, 지역 사회의 문화예술 수준을 높이고 공동체를 통합하는 데 기여한 점을 평가받았다고 연합뉴스가 보도했다.

The National Council on the Arts, consisting of 14 members, is in charge of operating a $150 billon fund on supporting the country’s performing arts.

Born in 1968 in New York, the second-generation Korean American previously served as president and executive director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Kang also led the Seattle Symphony and the American Composers Orchestra and was an orchestra management fellow with the League of American Orchestras.

He is also a secretary of the Board of Directors of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, and a member of both the Nominating Committee of the International Society for the Performing Arts and the Board of Advisors of the Kenan Institute for the Arts at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Kang studied economics at University of Rochester.
