On Sunday (9/13) at Barry’s Blog: News, Advice and Opinion for the Arts Administrator, Barry Hessnius published his eighth annual listing of the “Top 50 Most Powerful and Influential Leaders in the Nonprofit Arts in America.” Hessenius writes, “This list extols national leaders over more local or special sector leadership, not by design, but because the process of selection involves more people with a national perspective.” Among the 50 are Jesse Rosen, president and CEO, League of American Orchestras; Jamie Bennett, executive director, Art Place America; Alan Brown, principal, Wolf / Brown Consulting; Janet Brown, president and CEO, Grantmakers in the Arts; Jane Chu, chairwoman, National Endowment for the Arts; Adam Huettler, executive director, Fractured Atlas; Sunil Iyengar, director, Office of Research and Analysis, National Endowment for the Arts; arts educator Eric Booth; Josephine Ramirez, program director, Arts, James Irvine Foundation; Richard Evans, president, EmcArts; Amy Fitterer, executive director, Dance USA; and blogger Diane Ragsdale.
