Four newcomers elected Jan. 31

Members of BeaconArts on Jan. 31 elected Hanny Ahern, Karlyn Benson, Meghan Goria and Linda Pratt Kimmel to the organization’s nine-member board. The group also released a mission statement that came out of a strategic planning process funded in part by a Dyson Foundation grant and facilitated by Eve Madelengoitia and the New York Council of Non Profits.

The statement defines the BeaconArts mission to promote the city “as a center for arts and culture” and enable artists of all disciplines “to live and thrive” in Beacon by promoting their projects and events. At the same time, it will develop “inspiring creative experiences and programs” for the community.
