Meet the supervisor

Marketing Manager Renee Aguilar

I am a dedicated arts and culture advocate, and museum professional with over 15 years experience and a proven record of creating meaningful engagement between cultural organizations and their communities through special events, public programming, creative marketing initiatives, and educational opportunities. One of the things that I value most about working in the arts, is the opportunity to collaborate with others who are creative and passionate about the arts. It is important for me to work in a collaborative environment where everyone feels heard and appreciated. Thinking outside the box, looking for new ways to engage people in the arts, and making connections with like-minded individuals and organizations to strengthen the arts in our community is a philosophy that I try to put into practice with everything I do. When working with a small team, it is important to trust colleagues and their expertise in their fields. It is also helpful to learn about what everyone's responsibilities are to understand better how to work together and how to support each other.​
