Clackamas County Arts Alliance Announces Executive Search
After twenty years as Executive Director, Cheryl Snow will retire from
Clackamas County Arts Alliance at the end of this year.

On behalf of the Clackamas County Arts Alliance and its Board of Directors, it is with pleasure and sadness, but also with great anticipation, that Board Chair Kevin Yell announced the retirement of Cheryl Snow as Executive Director at the end of this year.

“Under Snow’s tenure, Clackamas County Arts Alliance has grown in response to county-wide demands to include programs that benefit at-risk youth, school programs, tourism initiatives, community beautification, and health care environments using art as a healing tool,” says Yell. “Cheryl has led the organization through growth of scope and engagement in the community that cannot be understated.” A wonderful and vibrant community asset since 1999, the Arts Alliance has evolved under Snow’s direction from an advisory board, appointed by county commissioners, to a non-profit with a wide breadth of activities ranging from grant programs to public art exhibits to a full spectrum of art-related projects, performances and displays.

The Board of Directors’ goal and priority is to continue the work Snow, staff and countless volunteers have accomplished, continuing the role of the Arts Alliance as a leader among its peers for innovative and sustained work. As the Arts Alliance approaches its 25thyear, the Board has begun the search to identify the best candidate for the position. Learn more by reviewing the position announcement:

Snow looks forward to the future, stating, “I’m confident that the Arts Alliance is positioned to grow and thrive, thanks to our team of extraordinarily capable staff, a committed and dedicated Board of Directors, and the support of many incredible volunteers. It feels great to leave this wonderful organization in such good hands.”

We thank Cheryl for her passion and dedication, and wish her the best in this new adventure!
