Jackson Walker congratulates Brad Brown on his graduation from the Leadership Arts Institute as a member of the Dallas Class of 2021.
Founded in 1989, the Leadership Arts Institute (LAI) is a program of the Business Council for the Arts, a nonprofit that builds business and arts partnerships to advance arts and culture in North Texas. Each year, the LAI program introduces members to speakers who are well-versed in the victories, tribulations, day-to-day management, and histories of local arts and cultural organizations. In addition, members take part in hands-on arts management through a class project.
The 2021 LAI class heard from 22 arts and culture leaders and hosted a fundraising event and art auction that provided over $33,000 to repair greenhouses at the Texas Discovery Gardens, which preserve endangered species of plants unique to North Texas. The class also donated over $16,000 in proceeds from the auction to benefit local galleries and artists.
“LAI opened my eyes to arts organizations that are doing amazing things for the city of Dallas,” Brad said. “The class further equipped me with tools that I hope to utilize in serving arts groups well into the future.”
Brad joins an ever-growing list of Jackson Walker attorneys to participate in the Leadership Arts Institute, including Chris R. Bankler, Alden S. Crow, Mario Perez Dolan, Larry E. Glasgow, L. Suzan Kedron, Virginia Alverson Mimmack, and Amy Osberg Roberts.
A partner in the Trial & Appellate Litigation section, S. Brad Brown focuses on aviation, products liability, insurance, and business-related matters. In recognition of his practice, Brad has been named among Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business since 2016 and Who’s Who Legal: Texas since 2018.
