Andrea Specht

Artistry director turns another page

Executive Director and Chief Advancement Officer Andrea Specht can take a bow for her performance at Artistry. Under her direction, the organization achieved best-in-show-status for artistic programming with award-winning theater productions, art exhibitions, arts education and more. Receiving the 2018 Omar Bonderud Award was among the many Artistry successes of Specht’s tenure. 

“For as much as I’ve poured into our organization over nine years, I’ve gotten as much or more back,” she said.

Still, Specht heard a calling to continue her contributions in a new role. Before her departure, she was honored with a donor luncheon and community reception, and a special fund was raised for Artistry in her name by the organization’s board of directors.
