Working collaboratively in newly created positions are Eileen Wiseman as artistic director and Nancy Heller as business and development director, an announcement said.

“This restructuring provides a strong team approach that allows the Westport Arts Center to continue to strengthen and diversify the ways in which we bring visual arts, performing arts and arts education to this community,” said Gary Cosgrave of Westport, president of WAC’s board of directors. “For such a multi-dimensional, expanding Arts Center, this change was overdue.”

Wiseman will be responsible for creating and implementing WAC’s extensive programming in the visual and performing arts. Heller will manage business strategies, finances and development, and oversee the administrative staff, the announcement said.
