Happy holidays from the A2AC,
I am Jenn Cornell Queen, the new Executive Director at A2AC. I have enjoyed hitting the ground running, working alongside the talented team at the Art Center and its board of directors to learn more about our century-old institution. Prior to formally joining A2AC, I enjoyed attending A2AC events, gifting art from the Gallery Shop, and making ArtBox creations with my children.
I absolutely love Ann Arbor! I have been part of the community for over 20 years, having founded and run two businesses in the city. Before joining the A2AC, I was senior vice president of marketing, communications, and events at another Ann Arbor-based non-profit. In addition to my role at the A2AC, I am actively involved with the Ecology Center, Main Street Area Association, Destination Ann Arbor, and Family Learning Institute.
Looking forward, I will focus on building on the organization’s central role in our creative culture. Between the new gallery, ever-increasing demand for arts education, and unique programs like our ArtLab digital art classes, there’s incredible potential to bring new attention and support to the A2AC.
I hope to meet you soon!
