Sharon Polli Named FAWC Executive Director
May 10, 2021 | 12:00 pm
The board of trustees of the Fine Arts Work Center announced last week that Sharon Polli has been appointed the organization’s new executive director, effective May 10th. Polli, who currently serves as executive vice president of BRIC, in Brooklyn, N.Y., was chosen through a nationwide search led by Arts Consulting Group. She replaces Richard MacMillan, who announced he was stepping down last August, and Margaret Murphy, who became interim executive director on March 1.
“Nearly two decades ago, I first explored the thriving Provincetown artistic community and was awestruck by its vibrancy,” said Polli in a press release. “I believe in the vital role that the Fine Arts Work Center plays in supporting emerging talent in the arts and literature, and I am extremely honored to join the outstanding team at FAWC.”
At BRIC, Polli had extensive fundraising experience, and she previously worked at Groundswell, CreateNYC, and Downtown Brooklyn Arts Alliance. She is currently co-chair of the board of directors of Theatre of the Oppressed NYC.
