Thanks to Tim Ridlen for chronicling the art scene in his new adoptive hometown of NYC. Up next is Lila Kanner. Lila joined the staff at Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue in 2006 and has been its Executive Director since 2008.

Prior to serving at Artadia, Kanner was the Associate Director of the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia. From 1999 to 2002, she served as Director of Artist Services and Educational Programs at The Copley Society of Boston. She earned her master’s degree in Art History and Curatorial Studies from Columbia University in New York, and graduated cum laude from Wellesley College.
