Atlantic Center for the Arts Appoints Nancy Lowden Norman as Executive Director

"Nancy's leadership and history with Atlantic Center for the Arts are the perfect combination to expand our vision and programming in our local community and beyond" - Mark Beckwith, Chair of the Board of Trustees

The Atlantic Center for the Arts has announced the appointment of Nancy Lowden Norman as Executive Director.

A 22-year veteran of the organization, she leads the vision of one of the top nonprofit artists' communities in the world, with input from stakeholders including Trustees, its national artistic advisory board, members and the community at large.

Lowden Norman oversees daily operations and artistic and fiscal management, and is responsible for a premier residency program, management of Arts on
Douglas Fine Arts & Collectibles Gallery and diverse and quality community programs offered through ACA at Harris House. She has experienced over 100
residencies as part of Atlantic Center's Artists-in-Residence Program, and engaged the community through arts education programs and summer art camp for youth, multigenerational events in Arts & Wellness, and exhibition opportunities for outstanding Florida artists.

An advocate for Atlantic Center for the Arts and the field of Artists' Communities nationwide, Lowden Norman completed the Certificate in Philanthropic Fundraising from Rollins College Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Center, Winter Park, FL, and the Leadership Development Program at the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, NC. She received her MS in Mass Communication from San Diego State University, her BS in journalism from University of Florida, and is on the Board of the Volusia County Cultural Alliance. She has presented at conferences including THE CREATIVE AGE, Global Perspectives on Creativity and Aging presented by the National Center for Creative Aging in Washington DC, the Florida Alliance for Arts Education, and the Alliance of Artist Communities, among many others. She is also the editor of the book "Doris Leeper: Legacy of a Visionary," published by the Florida Historical Society in 2017.
