This provided a foundation for experimentation, innovation, and unlikely collaborations that have defined MadArt over the last decade. Throughout her tenure, Milliman has shepherded the organization into a nationally recognized contemporary art space that has directly supported over 75 artists through the commissioning of new and compelling works.
Emily Kelly and the MadArt team will continue to honor Milliman's intentions while broadening programming and cultural partnerships to reflect the ever-evolving pulse of the arts community.
