Meet the Artists

Board 2015

The trustees of Baltimore Clayworks are key community and civic volunteers who are responsible for the ethical, legal and fiscal well-being of the institution. They provide institutional guidance from a policy standpoint, approve an annual budget, and with the executive director insure that the organization adheres to its mission. Clayworks has a very diverse board from the standpoint of individual talents, regional geography, and professional affiliations. Baltimore Clayworks asks its trustees to engage their personal and professional networks toward the advancement of the organization. Trustees are expected to make a financial contribution annually, and to participate in the life of Clayworks through attending board meetings and events, and through serving on a committee. Clayworks promises integrity, authentic programs, timely and candid communications with its trustees.
