The Northfield Arts Guild is delighted to announce that Andrea Sjogren has accepted the position of Executive Director, starting March 1, 2021. Andrea comes to us from the education sector, most recently as the program manager for community education for the Hopkins school district. She has held positions on multiple non-profit boards, including several years on the Executive Board of Twin Cities Ballet. “I am thrilled to have the chance to lead such an established organization and cultural anchor in the Northfield community,” Sjogren said. “I am grateful for the trust that board members have placed in me and look forward to joining staff and community members in creating exceptional arts experiences for all. I look forward to meeting Guild members, patrons, students, partners, and community members soon!”
“Andrea’s history in non-profits, arts learning and public education, as well as her strong focus on community engagement and relationship building are just what we need to further our mission, vision and guiding values. Her skills are even more important as we transition into more in-person programming over the coming months,” said Rolf Kragseth, Board President. We wish to thank the volunteers and staff members who put their time into the search effort, and our dedicated members who participated in the members’ forum last week.
