About Cynthia Henderson

I am currently serving the Siskiyou Arts Museum as Art, Events and Workshop Coordinator. My duties include communicating with artists, presenters, and instructors to arrange for adequate PR for their events. I also offer graphic arts services for the events, and update the website and Facebook pages. Very challenging, yet very rewarding ... I am also an artist, and love supporting other artists in this way.
