Personnel changes are afoot at the Association for Visual Arts, reports Anne Willson, AVA’s executive director. Kathryn Dunn has been named major projects manager, which includes directing the annual 4 Bridges Arts Festival.
Dunn succeeds Laura Linz in the role, and brings a comprehensive background in arts management, project management and marketing to the position, said Willson.
Dunn completed both a master’s of fine arts at Florida State University and a master’s of public administration at UTC. She has previously worked with local businesses Brewer Media, Shuptrine’s Gold Leaf Designs and Chattanooga Kids on the Block.
Along with Dunn, AVA welcomes Savannah College of Art and Design graduate Lauren Necko as lab monitor of AVA’s Media Lab and clean room photo studio.
Willson said Necko is knowledgeable in a range of design software and has professional photography experience. The Media Lab reopened on Sept. 8 and will remain open on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
