FORMER television host and model Kristina Newman-Scott is the new director of culture in Hartford, Connecticut.

Her focus will be on marketing arts, culture and historic preservation, according to Catherine Smith, commissioner at Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development.

According to an article posted on the website, www.courant.com, Newman-Scott arrives at the DECD at a time when the state legislature faces large arts cuts in state funding.

Newman-Scott assumes her position this month. She was previously director of programmes at the Boston Center for the Arts.

From 2005 to 2010, she was director of visual arts at Hartford’s Real Art Ways. She is also a board member of the city’s TheaterWorks and the Hartford Symphony Orchestra.

Born and raised in Kingston, Newman-Scott was an art consultant for eight years before migrating to the United States.

She has a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. While in Jamaica, she did a stint as a host for Entertainment Report on TVJ and Games of Hears on CVM TV.
