Pam Tatge ’84, MALS ’10, P’16, director of Wesleyan’s Center for the Arts (CFA), was appointed to the board of the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA).
Noted for facilitating Liz Lerman’s “Ferocious Beauty: Genome” at the CFA, an exploration of repercussions of genetic research in 2006, Tatge received the 2010 William Dawson Award from the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, given to an individual or organization in the presenting field for sustained leadership, innovation and vision in program design, audience building and community involvement efforts.
Additionally, Tatge worked closely with former NEFA executive director Sam Miller ’75 to create Wesleyan’s Institute for Curatorial Practice and Performance, which offers an MA in performance curation. As a Wesleyan undergraduate, she majored in history.
“NEFA is an extraordinary institution with innovative programs that successfully marry artists to audiences in New England and across our nation,” Tatge says. “I’m honored to serve on their board.”
