"SAA has been my life and my obsession for the last 11+ years and leaving will be difficult indeed. For those who have been at my side over this time, you know how much we have come through – creating financial stability, Access Art and the ADA compliant/annex renovation, the Centennial Project and the commemorative sculpture, and now the year of the pandemic. We have indeed come a long way together! I will always remember you all (boards, donors, funders, members, Gallery Guides etc.) and the amazing commitment you have to your community and the arts sector that underlies its vivacity.
I leave knowing that despite the pandemic SAA is in good shape financially and programmatically. The current staff group is focused, talented, and working as a tight team, often in new and adaptive areas of programming. I cannot say enough about their creativity, commitment, and teamwork. They are SAA’s greatest asset.”
