Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts is proud to announce the addition of Sara Lomasz Flesch as director. Flesch succeeds Megan Kulick, who has led the organization since 2014.
Flesch brings years of experience in nonprofit management and communications to her new position. Most recently she has worked in senior management roles supporting the historic preservation and public education programming at Taliesin Preservation, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the School of Architecture at Taliesin in Spring Green. Her background in journalism and current role as editor and publisher of the Voice of the River Valley arts and culture magazine will be useful in expanding Shake Rag’s growing reputation as a strong, vibrant art school.
