Erin Becker is the Norma Jean Calderwood Director of the Cambridge Art Association (CAA). Since 2012, Erin has increased the visibility of the Association by creating new and continuing exhibitions and programs, including: establishing a youth outreach program in collaboration with Cambridge Creativity Commons and Cambridge Youth Programs/Gately Youth Center; creating an ongoing series of exhibits to promote local emerging artists; relaunching the CAA’s art lending programs; and and fostering collaborative relationships with local organizations, including Maud Morgan Arts, Cambridge Community Television, Lesley University College of Art and Design (LUCAD) and the Griffin Museum of Photography. In addition to her work at CAA, Erin serves on the Board of Directors of the Harvard Square Business Association; the Advisory Board for Cambridge Open Studios; the Dean’s Community Advisory Committee at LUCAD; and is a co-founder of the Art Centers Alliance, a group of roughly 25 community arts centers in the Greater Boston area. She is also a past reviewer for the Cambridge Arts Council’s LLC Grant Program, and past Gala Committee Member at the Guidance Center. Erin holds a BA in Art History from Boston University, and a Certificate from Boston University’s Institute for Nonprofit Management Leadership Core Program at Questrom Business School.
