Americans for the Arts Names Clayton Lord VP of Local Arts Advancement

Clay Lord PhotographToday, Americans for the Arts named Clayton Lord as its new Vice President of Local Arts Advancement.

In this role, Lord will be responsible for developing and executing all Americans for the Arts programs and services that strengthen and validate local arts agencies and the many other individuals and organizations that advance arts, culture and artists at the local level.

Lord comes to Americans for the Arts from Theatre Bay Area, one of the largest regional arts service organizations in the United States. As the organization’s director of communications and audience development, he oversaw marketing, communications, audience development initiatives, and research and business development. In addition, he spearheaded several research initiatives that investigated major issue areas in the American arts field, including impact measurement, diversity, strategy, advocacy, public goodwill, perception, and the psychology of artsgoing, including the landmark publication “Counting New Beans: Intrinsic Impact and the Value of Art.”

We’re very excited to welcome him to the Americans for the Arts team!
