As the Arts Council of Indianapolis begins searching for a new CEO to replace outgoing Greg Charleston (See IBJ's story here), the obvious question is: What are we looking for?

What should be the role of the Arts Council's CEO in these challenging times? Better to have a local insider or a fresh face from outside Indy? What would you be looking for if you were on the task force?

Your thoughts?

  • Fresh face from outside.
  • Bad timing for this announcement, what with the upcoming arts rally on Monday.

    The Arts Council doesn't necessarily need someone from outside the area, but maybe someone from outside the arts world per se. Someone with a business background, preferably in PR or marketing, and with a keenly honed talent for scoring funds and managing money, would be a very good choice.
  • What we need it someone who will do all of the above but also be a strong spokesperson and educator? There needs to be a strong, focused effort to help our community realize why cultural assets are important beyond just the business focus!
