A designer and creative specialist with boundless energy and ideas, Julie Glantz has been involved in promoting the arts and artists since she arrived in San Francisco (and even before that) from her native land, New York, 25 years ago, making her a fully assimilated Northern Californian, with a heavy dollop of old school Brooklyn.
During her time in New York, Julie was fortunate to have worked for visionaries in the fields of design (Tibor Kalman), film (Alex Cox), literature (Rudy Wurlitzer) and photography (Robert Frank); experiences which transformed her way of seeing, thinking, and interacting with design and the world.
Soon after landing in San Francisco in 1992, she established and managed an independent design and manufacturing studio, A Thousand Words, producing hand bound books, paper products and ultimately authoring several titles for Chronicle Books. After 1o fruitful years with her studio, she became involved in education as a teaching artist at middle and elementary schools and ultimately found her way to the San Francisco School of the Arts, where she provides her special blend of magical thinking, marketing, hard work, and a sense of humor, to shout about the wonderful achievements of the students, artists-in-residence, and educators at San Francisco's only public arts high school.
She met Matthew Cmiel during his time as Director of Orchestras at SOTA and forged a friendship of love and creativity that she anticipates will last a lifetime.
