ANNOUNCEMENT FROM INSPIRE’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Inspire Community Fine Art Center is pleased to announce that we have chosen Lisa Cortez Walden Ph.D. as our new Executive Director. Lisa will be taking over for Susan Calkins, founder, beginning in January 2018. While Inspire is sad to see Susan leave, we are happy to usher in a new leader with Lisa. Lisa has over 20 years of experience in the non-profit world and wide range of skills that will be instrumental in the transition to our new location.
The Inspire Board and staff would like to extend our utmost gratitude to Susan Calkins for her service as Executive Director for the past 12 years. Lisa will continue to grow the projects Susan started during her tenure as well as incorporate valuable community feedback into a sustainable plan for Inspire’s future.

"Thank you for having Free Family Art Day! I am a single mom living on a month-to-month income and without your program this last weekend my kids would have been stuck in front of the TV due to lack of funds. Your activities are always a hit with both of my kids and I enjoy it too! Thank you again for all you do." -San Antonio Single Mom
