Ruby Lerner, Founding Executive Director, Creative Capital
Robert spoke with Ruby Lerner at Bennington’s Center for the Advancement of Public Action this fall about the trailblazing organization she founded in 1999, Creative Capital. Bringing a venture capital model of support to artists, Creative Capital provides long-term financial support and training for artists in order to help them realize their visions and build sustainable practices.
Ruby stepped down from her role at Creative Capital in 2016, and has since been working in consultation with many art schools and organizations, along with serving on a variety of advisory groups and boards of directors.
