THE NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF YOSEMITE RENAISSANCE
We are pleased to introduce Jonathan W. Bock as the new executive director for Yosemite Renaissance. Jon has more than 30 years experience as an artist, art director, gallery curator and business owner. He has managed Sierra Art Trails for 15 years, growing the organization's flagship event, the annual "Sierra Art Trails Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour" into the largest art event in the region.
Jon is very enthusiastic to pick up the torch. He has the experience and resources to move Yosemite Renaissance to a new level. He is already proving to be a wonderful asset to the organization.
