Prominent SF Latinos selected for national posts

Luis Cancel, The City’s director of cultural affairs, and Arts Commissioner Lorraine Garcia-Nakata have been elected to serve on the National Museum of the American Latino Commission.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed Cancel and Garcia-Nakata to the commission posts, according to the San Francisco Art Commission.

The two will join 23 other prominent Latinos – including actress Eva Longoria-Parker – in helping to study a proposed national museum for American Latino culture in Washington D.C.

The Commission will submit a report outlining a plan for the museum to Congress and the White House within two years, the commission said.
