September 30, 2017

Following an extensive search, the Board of Directors of Redux Contemporary Art Center, in Charleston, SC, today announced that Cara Leepson has been selected to become its new Executive Director. Cara will begin on December 1. Interim Executive Director Beth Kerrigan will remain full-time at Redux through Dec. 1, 2017.

Leepson brings a wealth of experience in the not-for-profit and arts sector. She has been a successful fundraiser, team builder and is committed to serving the arts community. She currently serves as Development and Operations Manager for Transformer, a nationally respected arts organization in Washington, DC. She has also worked for other arts organizations in the nation’s capital. Leepson has a Master of Arts degree in Art and Museum Studies with an emphasis in Public Programming and Contemporary Art from Georgetown University. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in studio art from Lynchburg College. She worked as an intern at Redux prior to returning to the DC area for graduate school.

The search for Redux’s next Executive Director was facilitated by Governance4Good and attracted 120 applicants from across the country. Leepson was clearly the right choice to become our next Executive Director. Her incredible energy, arts management experience, and fundraising talent will be a great asset as we continue promoting contemporary art and emerging artists in the Lowcountry and beyond. She will be traveling to Charleston for our 15th Anniversary Celebration and will build on the momentum of our recent growth. Leepson commented on her appointment, “I am thrilled to be selected as Redux’s new Executive Director. I am excited to return to Charleston and begin fulfilling the mission of Redux and working toward taking the organization to the next level.”
