Living Arts, a non-profit organization based in Detroit, recently named Alissa Novoselick its executive director, succeeding Cara Graninger in the role.

“After an extensive search, we are thrilled that Alissa is joining the Living Arts team,” says Mike Brown, board president. “Alissa’s vast experience in arts education and advocacy, coupled with her keen business acumen, made her the standout candidate to build upon Living Arts’ incredible growth of the past few years. As an artist, educator and arts administrator, Alissa’s passion is evident in her many accomplishments and we are excited to share that passion with the Detroit community.”

Previously, Novoselick served as the executive director of the Tamarack Foundation for the Arts in West Virginia where she expanded fundraising, arts education programming, and arts advocacy. Novoselick’s accomplishments include the launch of an emerging artist fellowship program, the creation of the West Virginia Creative Business Think Tank and leading the organization through a marketing rebrand.

Novoselick holds a master’s degree in business administration from Antioch University, a bachelor of arts from the University of Michigan, and is part of the National Arts Strategies Chief Executive Program through Harvard Business School. Novoselick also worked as a high school teacher, educating students in Southfield, and Native American students in Arizona. She was recently named one of the West Virginia State Journal’s “40 under 40,” a 2016 YWCA Woman to Watch, and served an appointment by the governor of West Virginia on the Broadband Enhancement Council.

Founded in 1999, Living Arts is an organization that engages Detroit youth, teachers, and families in experiences in the performing, visual, literary, and media arts.
