"Creativity Explored is important to me because we are a community based on mutual respect for all people. Everyone who comes through the doors is part of our community. I'm truly honored to have led this organization for so many years and proud of the attention we bring to the exceptional work of artists with developmental disabilities."
- Amy Taub
After 18 years as the Executive Director of Creativity Explored, Amy Taub will be retiring at the end of June, 2017. Taub's leadership, along with the Board and staff's achievements, over the years has placed the organization in an ideal position to grow and succeed.
Painter Executive Search is supporting Creativity Explored in its search for a new Executive Director to lead the organization in advancing its mission to provide artists with developmental disabilities the means to create, exhibit, and sell their art and to celebrate the power of art to change lives.
The Executive Director (ED), reporting to the Board of Directors, will have overall responsibility for leading all aspects of CE’s organizational effectiveness, health and sustainability. The ED has a key role in stewarding and advancing an internal culture that nurtures and celebrates individual creativity - a place where artists with developmental disabilities can thrive, create and be recognized through their work. Working in close collaboration with an experienced staff of teaching artists, the ED facilitates a culture of learning, inclusion, respect, and joyful chaos. The ED will lead the efforts to expand earned income through art licensing and sales, and actively build a more robust contributed income program that includes increased foundation, major gift and planned giving programs. Increasing CE’s profile regionally, nationally, and internationally through the promotion of studio artists’ work will be an important vehicle for ensuring the mission of CE is sustained over time.
