Ann Kappes
Director of Licensing

Ann Kappes is an avid art appreciator whose work with cultural organizations includes curating, public program development, marketing, sales, and project management. Her diverse experiences with both commercial and nonprofit arts groups have enabled Ann to fulfill her professional pursuit of making these organizations exciting learning environments that engage and enhance their communities.

Ann has an MA degree in Museum Studies with emphasis in curatorial studies complemented by a BA in Journalism with art and anthropology minors.

Ann joined Creativity Explored in 2009 after being a longtime supporter and advocate. She has since been fortunate enough to collect a lot of amazing art and meet many equally amazing individuals.

Something magical and truly unique happens each and every day I walk into the Creativity Explored studios and gallery. Whether I'm witnessing the creation of an amazing new artwork, being greeted enthusiastically by one of the over 135 plus artists working in our studios, or connecting with visitors, the experience at Creativity Explored never fails to surprise and inspire me. I often tell people that if I could capture the essence of CE in a bottle, we could sell it and support the organization for all eternity!
