The Westport Arts Center proudly welcomes longtime Westport resident, Andrea Pouliot, to the new role of Manager of Events & Membership.
The Arts Center produces opening receptions for curated exhibitions, chamber and jazz concert series, annual galas, art talks and lectures, family art experiences and regional and international art excursions for members and the public, attracting attendees from Fairfield County and beyond. The non-profit arts organization brings Ms. Pouliot onto staff as it plans to expand the reach of membership and audiences by offering new programming to resonate with its constituents. Among many projects, Ms. Pouliot is currently planning a members’ excursion to the 2019 Venice Biennale.
Ms. Pouliot has over 25 years of event experience ranging from professional sports for both basketball and golf, as well as regionally-based wedding and event planning. She continues to volunteer for the Westport chapter of the National Charity League where she will co-chair the Annual Tea for the next two years. Ms. Pouliot’s other philanthropic ventures include Homes with Hope’s Gather ‘Round the Table, The Westport Playhouse, Person to Person and CT Quest For Peace.
“As a 15-year resident of Westport, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to the arts in our community. Now that my children have grown, I am able to shift my focus on professionally supporting this creative culture so that it reaches the next generation,” says Pouliot.
