Linda Blumberg will be stepping down from her position as the Art Dealers Association of America’s first executive director. She has served in the role for more than eleven years. Following her departure, she will work in an advisory capacity and will continue to support the next iteration of the ADAA’s annual fair, the Art Show, which will see its thirtieth anniversary in 2018.
Blumberg oversaw eleven presentations of the Art Show during her tenure. During that time she initiated the Collectors’ Forum, a series of public talks and panel discussions. She overhauled the organization’s website, established its social media presence, and advocated for the ADAA with federal, state, and regional governments. In addition, she was integral to spearheading the ADAA’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.
