Join us in congratulating Chad Herzog on his new appointment as the executive director of UA Presents at the University of Arizona.
Herzog will oversee all aspects of UA Presents, the UA’s performing arts presenter, by providing creative vision for the organization and curating programming. He is leaving International Festival of Arts and Ideas in New Haven, Connecticut, to join the UA Presents, starting August 12.
For over 10 years, Herzog was the director of performing arts at Juniata College in Huntington, Pennsylvania. There, he successfully developed innovative programming that grew participation by elevating the arts as a means of teaching and learning, integrating arts and culture into all aspects of campus life. Herzog created a model for artists and audiences to interact with one another not only through performance, but by commissioning new works and offering world-premiere performances. As a result, participation in Juniata Presents increased by 250 percent and student engagement rose by 700 percent. Read the full announcement on the University of Arizona website.
