Carnegie's Executive Director Resigns

The executive director of The Carnegie has resigned.

The Covington-based arts organization announced Friday that it had accepted the resignation of Katie Brass, who took over as development director at the Carnegie in 2007, before being elevated to executive director sixteen months later.

In a news release, it was stated that Brass is leaving to spend more time with her family.

Brass came to the Carnegie from the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati.

Since taking over at the Carnegie, the organization completed a $200,000 renovation of its front plaza, expanded programming across all departments, launched a new brand, and expanded to include a set-building workshop at the Hellmann Creative Center.

“As a board member for the past nine years I’ve had the pleasure of working very closely with Katie, and know first hand the impact her leadership has had on the organization,” said Molly Prues, Carnegie board president., in a statement. “All of us on the Board wish Katie nothing but the best,and will all miss working with her.”

The Carnegie’s Board of Directors will meet in July to discuss next steps in filling the executive director role, according to a news release. The Carnegie’s deputy director, Kim Best, has been named interim executive director.
