How To… Support Artists Now with Deana Haggag

Oct 1, 2020
9:00 AM

We are delighted to invite you to the second event in our “How To…” series, a discussion about new ways of thinking about philanthropy in the arts.

Deana Haggag is the president & CEO of United States Artists, a national arts funding organization based in Chicago, IL. Previously, she was the executive director of the Contemporary, a nomadic, non-collecting museum in Baltimore, MD, for four years. Haggag, who lectures extensively, is on the Board of Trustees of the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Artistic Director’s Council of Prospect.5, and the Advisory Council of Recess.

United States Artists, typically a grant-making body, have adapted to the current health crisis and its impact on artists by distributing almost $20 million in the form of $5,000 emergency relief checks to artists around America.

“How To…” is a series of conversations with art world insiders moderated by Charlotte Burns and produced exclusively for AAM members. Charlotte is a journalist and podcast host who created and ran the leading show “In Other Words” for Art Agency Partners at Sotheby’s. Together we are creating unique digital content for you, starting with a range of interviews where we will gain insight into various topics directly from the experts. Enjoy full access to How To… programming when you join the museum at the Director’s Circle level membership and up!
