The Board of Directors of the Arts Council of Rockland recently hired Janey Tannenbaum as the organization’s new Executive Director. Ms. Tannenbaum takes the reins from Mark Judelson who led the Garnerville-based agency for 19 years.
As her first order of business, Tannenbaum has announced a new round of funding workshops and internship opportunities at the non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the arts and artists in Rocklnad County.
Ms. Tannenbaum has twenty years of experience in the arts and literature. She previously served as the Director at the Smithsonian Institution Press and the Director of the Bowery Poetry Club/Bowery Arts & Sciences.
“This year Rockland residents can look forward to great things coming from Janey Tanenbaum at the Arts Council of Rockland.” Said ACOR Board President Keith Cornell.
“The Arts Council continually advances arts education which ranges from work by poets, writers, performers, visual artists, filmmakers, and other artists,” Cornell continued.
“I believe that art should be offered in every neighborhood because it strengthens the individuals as well as the community,” said Tannenbaum of her arts programming philosophy .
