Beginning in September, Minton will oversee all art education programs, curriculum development and exhibitions in the Art Association gallery. She will report to Executive Director Mark Nowlin and work directly with the leadership staff and studio managers.

Executive Director Nowlin agrees. “I am very excited to have her bring energy, creativity, sense of community, family, and laughter to the Art Association.”
