Review for Columbia Art League, Columbia, MO, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Executive Director is rude, and misappropriates money that is meant for community art on excessive gallery decor. The board is not diverse, with no African Americans and few male members.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

run the organization like a charitable organization, for the benefit of the community instead of catering to the well-to-do crowd who already have a number of for profit galleries to visit.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

rude. Also the staff + volunteers are uneducated in the arts resulting in bad impressions with many would-be patrons.

Ways to make it better...

the people involved were courteous and acknowledged my participation.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

its legitimacy as a nonprofit.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Art in the Park is one of the worst art events in the Midwest where I had to fight my way through side shows just to get a look at the small percentage of talented artists that actually participated.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
