On Feb. 22 the Center for Contemporary Art (CCA) in Bedminster will welcome Elie Porter Trubert as its new executive director.
Trubert brings more than 12 years of nonprofit arts experience to CCA, having held positions at the Hunterdon Art Museum, the Arts Council of the Morris Area and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey where she was the director of development and communications for three years. She is an experienced manager, fund-raiser and development professional, and most recently was employed as a development consultant with Partnership in Philanthropy. She is also an artist, and lives with her family in rural Hunterdon County.
“I am a strong believer in the value of the arts and their impact on so many areas including the education, health and wellness, community-building, economic development and overall quality of life," said Trubert. "I am honored and excited to join an organization that is reinventing itself and is poised for tremendous growth, and I look forward to working with the CCA Board, staff, members and the local community.”
Founded in 1970, CCA until recently was known as the Somerset Art Association. The organization’s new identity was announced last October when the art center marked its 40th anniversary, recognizing past accomplishments and looking toward the future. CCA is a vital regional art center with a vibrant studio art school, extensive exhibition program and important community outreach component.
