Board of Directors

Message From The Board

Dear friends,

The Denmark Arts Center is evolving.

Artistic Directors,Cookie and Delaney, announced their resignation, as of Sept 1, 2017, so that they may pursue options available to them on their expanding career path.  In light of this information and due to current account balances, the Board of Directors voted to release the current Artistic Directors from their contracts in order to free them to move on as planned.

The Board of Directors have galvanized and will continue to offer much of the same programming as scheduled for summer 2017. The Board of Directors will pursue a new Artistic Director in the coming weeks and months.

The Denmark Art Center’s is committed to its mission to deliver a vibrant arts program to the community through performances, workshops, classes and residencies.

We sincerely thank Cookie and Delaney for their efforts to help grow the Denmark Arts Center into a vibrant and thriving arts organization by bringing to it a diverse assortment of arts programs.

We appreciate and welcome the community’s support, feedback, and suggestions for moving forward with future plans. The Denmark Arts Center will continue to operate as an outlet for local talent and artistic expression.
