Elliot Johnson currently serves as the Executive Director of Downtown Brookings, Inc. The mission of their nonprofit is to promote Downtown Brookings as the center of community engagement through programming, development, and innovation.
Since taking the helm, Johnson has focused his work on urbanizing the district through street art and interactive marketing tactics. Through partnerships with the local CVB and artists, Johnson created the Urban Canvas Project: a concept that has now welcomed four building-size murals to the downtown. In his spare time, Johnson is finishing his senior year of college at South Dakota State University with hopes of attending law school next year.
