Southampton Arts Center is dedicated to art, to our community. We’ve been stewards of these iconic grounds for nearly a decade, presenting and producing inspiring, thought-provoking, and culturally relevant exhibitions and programs on the East End, drawing more than 45,000 visitors to the Village of Southampton each year. Now, as we approach our 10th anniversary, we are thrilled to announce we have appointed a new leader to take the helm and advance our mission of community building through the arts — Christina Mossaides Strassfield.
Serving as SAC’s new executive director, Christina will build on her experience in leading all aspects of museum activities at Guild Hall, driving SAC’s artistic vision and programming, leading development and fundraising initiatives, and cultivating and maintaining the many partnerships and relationships with key stakeholders, and so much more.
And this is not Christina’s first time working with SAC. In the summer of 2022, she curated the FIGURES TRANSFORMED exhibition, which showcased the works of artists Deborah Buck, Hal Buckner, and Strong-Cuevas. Her dedication to the arts, experience and relationships with New York and East End artists, and commitment to the Southampton community she calls home make her the perfect leader for our organization.
“We are thrilled to have Christina step into the leadership position at Southampton Arts Center. Christina is well-known for the close relationships she has forged with the artists who have shaped the New York and East End art world. Her extensive experience and passion for the arts, as well as her strong commitment to the East End, position her perfectly to drive Southampton Arts Center’s next phase of growth.” – Simone Levinson, Southampton Arts Center founding co-chair
We look forward to welcoming Christina to 25 Jobs Lane in 2023!
