Artadia is pleased to announce Claire Malloy as Director of Advancement. Artadia will continue to effectively execute its crucial mission to support visual artists at this vital moment, especially on the occasion of the organization’s 25th anniversary in 2024.

Claire comes to Artadia with a career that spans over a decade overseeing fundraising and relationship management for organizations ranging from contemporary art museums [Whitney Museum, de Young Museum] to fully remote, web3/crypto startups [Tribute Labs]. She spent half her career directing the young patrons program at the Whitney Museum, the Contemporaries, stabilizing the growth of the group, expanding their annual gala and building an Executive Committee of socially conscientious donors and collectors.

Claire is an Executive Committee member of the Junior Board of The Lower Eastside Girls Club. She is a graduate of Tufts University and St. Louis University.

“As we enter our 25th year, we are incredibly excited to have Claire to join us,” adds Executive Director Patton Hindle. “Claire’s longstanding and deep commitment to the arts paired with her collaborative spirit harken the foundational values of Artadia and are grounding at this pivotal moment in the field.”
