Ebony McKinney In Memoriam
Program Officer
San Francisco Arts Commission

Grants for the Arts Citizens Advisory Committee member, Ebony McKinney, died suddenly on July 29, 2017 from complications of lupus and pneumonia. She was a beloved leader in the Bay Area and national arts communities and had served on GFTA’s Advisory Committee for seven years. Her bio, via Emerging Arts Professionals which she co-founded, is linked here. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Ebony’s family and colleagues across the country, and the many whose lives she touched with her wisdom and grace.
