WEDNESDAY, Feb. 5 — The Arts Council of Greater Lansing has found its new executive director: Meghan Martin. She succeeds Deborah Mikula, who held the title for five years before she left to accept another job with the Michigan Libraries Association.
Martin’s tenure with the Arts Council began in 2017 as program manager. During that time, Martin led the Council’s annual Creative Placemaking Summit — a brainstorming conference that joins creative leaders and aspires to brighten up Lansing neighborhoods with various placemaking projects.
In 2019, Martin was among 15 community leaders to complete the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affair’s Rising Leaders program. The training camp puts qualified participants through a six-month gauntlet of activities focusing on teaching local up-and-comers, “self-awareness, self-management, mutual influence” and other “tools to create communities.”
“I feel extremely proud and fortunate to be a part of the growing, generous and supportive arts and culture community that exists in Greater Lansing,” Martin said in a press release. “Our region’s talented artists and arts organizations, and our extended creative community, are at the heart of the work we do, and we have an exciting future ahead of us.”
