Charlotte Potter Kasic Appointed Manager of Museum Education and Engagement
The board of the Barry Art Museum at Old Dominion University announces the appointment of Charlotte Potter Kasic to the new position of Manager of Museum Education and Engagement. She will join the museum staff in January 2020.
A respected conceptual artist and designer, Kasic is a leader and innovator of educational programs in the arts. She received her undergraduate degree (BFA) from Alfred University in New York and her Master of Fine Arts degree at the Rhode Island School of Design.
Not new to the Tidewater community, Kasic was the founding Programming Director at the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio. During her tenure, she also made her mark locally as co-founder of the NEON festival and as a board member of the Glass Art Society. Her service as co-chair of that organization's annual international meeting held in Norfolk in 2017 was pivotal in making the event an international success. Since her departure from Hampton Roads, Kasic has served as the executive director at Yestermorrow Design/Build School in her native Vermont.
"The Barry Art Museum and its board are delighted to welcome such a talented and creative artist and innovative educator back to the Norfolk community," said Dr. Jutta-Annette Page, Executive Director of the Barry Art Museum. "Ms. Kasic will be a terrific asset to our Museum. Her career focus on developing inclusive strategic programs for diverse audiences will, again, enrich the arts of Hampton Roads at large."
In her new role, Kasic will create and steward a diverse range of educational programs that will utilize digital learning platforms to share the museum mission with larger audiences. She plans to expand museum collaborations with faculty, staff and students at ODU, build regional networks and will supervise the Museum's gallery educators, volunteers and interns.
