“We are thrilled to announce that Aimee Olivo is joining Art Works Now in the role of Executive Director,” says founder, Barbara Johnson, who will be transitioning from Executive Director to a board leadership role as Chair of the Board of Directors.
As Barbara said, “This is an exciting time for us! Art Works Now is my heart and soul. I am incredibly proud of what we have done in our first 11 years. What began as a small and scrappy arts education nonprofit with only a dozen students has grown to support the creative lives of over 4,000 creators of all ages. I am excited about the gifts Aimee brings to our organization and I have no doubt that she will lead us into a future that builds on our past and opens new opportunities for our beloved community. I look forward to working with her in my new role as Chair of the Board.”
Aimee is a dedicated community builder in Prince George’s County who brings to us her deep commitment to equity and social justice issues along with extensive professional fundraising experience. She has a passion for the arts and a firm belief in the power of the arts to transform lives. “I’ve called Prince George’s County home for nearly two decades. During that time, I’ve committed my professional and volunteer work to building community engagement and working toward social justice and equity in this County that I love. I am eager to continue this work as Executive Director of Art Works Now along with the amazing community, staff, and Board. I’m thrilled Barbara will remain engaged as Chair of the Board and am grateful for her confidence in me as her successor,” said Aimee.
“The future of Art Works Now is bright and we are looking forward to continuing to offer engaging high-quality arts programming to our community of creators. And, as always, we appreciate your continued support and participation in our programs.”
