The DC Center is proud to share that Kimberley Bush, the Center’s Director of Arts & Cultural Programs, will serve as the Interim Executive Director while the Board of Directors conducts a search for a new Executive Director. Kimberley also oversees, manages, and co-curates Center Arts Gallery, Arty Queers: DC’s LGTBQ Indoor Art Market, Outwrite: DC’s LGBTQ LIterary Festival, DC Queer Theatre Festival, Reel Affirmations: DC’s International LGBTQ Film Festival and Monthly Film Series. Kimberley previously filled the Acting ED role while David was on sabbatical for three months in 2018.
In her role as Director of Arts & Cultural Programs, Kimberley has demonstrated a sense of innovation and ambition in the projects she has taken on. The Reel Affirmations program, which Kimberley has been involved with for more than 15 years, has been ranked in the top three LGBTQ film festivals in the country. Arty Queers, an LGBTQ Art Market, that Kimberley established more recently, has already become a recurring event which draws patrons to the Center every month.
Though a New York native, Kimberley has lived in the DC area for thirty years and has become an accomplished leader in the community. In May, she was recognized as one of the 2019 Capital Pride Heroes.
We are appreciative of Kimberley’s willingness to step up and serve the DC Center as the Interim ED. We know the Center is in great hands and we look forward to her leadership in the months ahead!
