Jay Kelly, a familiar face in the world of entertainment public relations in Chicago, has joined L.C. Williams & Associates/Chicago as a vice-president charged with launching an arts and leisure practice at the PR firm. Kelly most recently fronted the public relations effort at Victory Gardens Theater, but over the years he has worked with a number of local arts institutions ranging from Lookingglass Theatre Co. to Court Theatre, Northlight Theatre and the League of Chicago Theatres.
Kelly already has brought the Victory Gardens public relations account in to the L.C.Williams fold, along with Thodos Dance Chicago and Theater Wit. He hopes to add to that roster as word spreads of his new role at L.C. Williams.
