Our team

The voluntary run board of Arts on the Ave consists of nine members, seven of whom are either practicing or former artists. The group started as a collective of like-minded individuals who planned, developed, implemented, managed and worked together toward their common goals. The board has seen some amazing successes and transformations. Its strength lies in its members. It is comprised of people with a vested interest in the success of the organization and the community. The members are diverse in their education and outlooks on life but they share goals and values and are not afraid to work to advance those. One of the most effective aspects of the board is the depth and breadth of its roots and branches in the community.

The structure of the organization consists of an executive committee supported by standing and ad hoc committees. These supplementary committees have a minimum of one board member per committee. They are staffed by the organizations membership and/or community volunteers. In addition, several interdisciplinary subcommittees meet regularly to discuss issues, collaborate on projects, and communicate ideas and directives between the board and the membership.
