Introducing Lindsey Davis, ArtAround’s New Executive Director

Today I am stepping down as executive director of ArtAround and handing over the reigns to Lindsey Davis.

Lindsey is an energetic, kindred spirit and the founder of, a database of art in the public space. She believes in the mission of connecting people to the art around them as much as anyone and I’m excited to see where she takes ArtAround next.

Helping people map and find the art around them has been a wonderful, challenging and fulfilling project for me for the past (nearly) four years.

Like all hard things you do that you care deeply about, you don’t get them done alone, but with really smart, capable people, many of whom, for this particular project, worked on a shoe-string budget and often for no money at all.
