The Big Move: Challenges and Advantages for the Columbus Arts Festival
Thursday, July 19, 2012 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
ABOUT THE LUNCHEON
During its more than 50 years, the Columbus Arts Festival has grown into one of the most highly acclaimed arts festivals in the nation. The 2012 Festival presented by Time Warner Cable marked the annual event’s return to the downtown Riverfront. In addition to hosting more than 240 nationally acclaimed artists, the Festival featured fantastic gourmet fare from some of the city's finest local restaurants, live music, hands-on art activities and more.
Vice President of Marketing for the Greater Columbus Arts Council (GCAC), Jami Goldstein, and director of the Columbus Arts Festival, Scott Huntley, will discuss the Festival’s move, including setting up the new site for this major community event and the interesting stories encountered along the way, as well as its involvement in the city’s 200Columbus Bicentennial celebration, how the new location impacted the Festival, and success stories on promoting this community event.
As Vice President of Marketing, Communications & Events, Jami Goldstein brings two decades of expertise in marketing, public relations and the non-profit arts to the Greater Columbus Arts Council. In addition to overseeing marketing, public relations, branding and events at GCAC, her role includes increasing national awareness of the city’s abundant creative capital and cultural assets, assisting with the implementation of the Columbus cultural plan, and strengthening and expanding partnerships within and outside the community.
Goldstein was a 2001 Fellow in the Jefferson Academy’s Next Generation of Leaders and a 2008 recipient of Business First’s Forty under 40 award. Since 2002 she has coordinated the annual Short/ROY Community Arts Day, a community event pairing professional artists with middle and high school students to paint doors reclaimed from neighborhood buildings. Goldstein serves on the boards of the Columbus Arts Marketing Association, ROY G BIV Gallery, and the Arts and College Preparatory Academy. She has a bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of Michigan.
Scott Huntley is responsible for the overall operation of the Columbus Arts Festival – one of the country’s premiere arts events. The three day Columbus Arts Festival is the City’s “welcome to summer” event which starts each year on the first Friday in June. The festival draws more than 400,000 patrons of the arts to the newly renovated waterfront along the Scioto River in downtown Columbus.
Educated at the University of Southern California, Scott spent his early career in Hollywood as an associate producer at Fox Studios and Universal Studios. He later produced numerous high-profile public and private events worldwide for companies and organizations including Boeing, AT&T, and the Boy Scouts of America. For 10 years, he was the Executive Producer of the Coach/Player of the Year awards presentation at College Basketball’s Final Four.
After successfully moving the Arts Festival back to its former home on the Columbus Riverfront, after four years in the Discovery District while the Scioto Mile was being renovated, Huntley will be focused on continuing to build the reputation and profile of the Festival nationally among artists, patrons and sponsors.
