Powerhouse Arts

With over two decades of experience working at the intersection of the arts, architecture, and urban planning, Katie has developed cultural programs and cross-sector partnerships with a variety of arts, culture and civic organizations and was appointed the founding CEO of Powerhouse Arts in 2014. Powerhouse Arts is a not-for-profit based in Gowanus and Red Hook, Brooklyn, established to create a robust platform for art production and employment in the arts. Under Katie's direction, Powerhouse is stewarding the redevelopment of the former Brooklyn Rapid Transit Power Station in Gowanus to create a new facility that will house fabrication and production facilities in wood, metal, ceramics, textiles and printmaking. Programming includes education, employment and public engagement to increase access and opportunity for participation in the arts for all New Yorkers.
