Dear Millay Colony Community,
We are reaching out to let you know about some changes for the coming season. Caroline Crumpacker, our Executive Director of 12 years, is leaving us to pursue her own writing and projects. We are very grateful for her years of service and community-building, and wish her all the best in the next part of her journey.
The Millay Colony holds a special place in the arts community, supporting artists and the creation of art through our thoughtfully curated residency program, Master Classes, Workshop Retreats and Alliance Program that fosters partnerships with other arts organizations. We thank Caroline and our Residency Director Calliope Nicholas for making these programs a success.
Melissa Sandor has graciously agreed to serve as Interim Director for the Colony to assure quality operations. Melissa is a former Millay Colony resident and served on our board for eight years. She brings tremendous experience as an advisor and consultant to many prestigious non-profit arts organizations, including The Studio Museum in Harlem, Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling, Central Park Conservancy, Ballet Hispanico, and many others.
We are confident and committed to guiding the Colony to its next level of growth and innovation and appreciate your support and involvement. We also look forward to welcoming our Spring residents and the continuation of all development programs to assure the Colony’s legacy.
With our warmest best,
The Board of Directors of The Millay Colony for the Arts
