Meet Tiffany Nesbit, IPCNY’s First Director of Development & External Affairs
International Print Center New York (IPCNY), New York’s flagship non-profit arts institution dedicated to advancing print as a primary artistic, cultural, and social medium, has appointed Tiffany Nesbit as the organization’s first Director of Development and External Affairs.
Under the leadership of Executive Director Judy Hecker, who joined IPCNY in 2016 from The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Department of Drawings & Prints, Nesbit will lead all aspects of development and external partnerships. Hecker states, “Along with our Trustees and staff, I’m pleased to welcome Tiffany to our growing team. Her contributions will strengthen IPCNY at this critical moment of institutional advancement, and we are excited to begin work together immediately, with our Spring Benefit in May and our major move and reopening this fall on the horizon.”
Embarking on a strategic plan for growth this year, IPCNY is committed to develop new, ambitious programming and to increase its staff, including the creation of this key role. In the fall, IPCNY will open a new, ground floor space at 535 West 24th Street that will house exhibition galleries and offices, significantly expanding access and capacity. Designed by architect Markus Dochantschi of studioMDA, the new home will be a welcoming, ADA accessible, and climate-controlled space in the heart of New York’s busy Chelsea art district.
“I look forward to working with Judy and IPCNY’s Board during this exciting new chapter. The opening of a ground-floor space on 24th Street will broaden public access to the field and give print an enhanced platform for diversifying artistic and curatorial voices, all in a home designed for ambitious exhibitions. I am truly thrilled to be joining IPCNY’s devoted community and to expand that community,” says Nesbit.
Nesbit brings nearly twenty years of fundraising experience overseeing globally renowned institutions across the visual and performing arts. Before joining International Print Center New York, Nesbit served as the Executive Director at Royal Academy America, the New York City office that supported and advocated for the Royal Academy of Arts in London, where she oversaw all fundraising revenue and cultural partnerships. She has held development positions at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the Young Vic Theatre (London), the Old Vic Theatre (London), and New York Public Radio. Most recently, Nesbit served as Director of Development for American Associates of the National Theatre, the New York-based office for the National Theatre in London.
