Looking ahead: Textile Center!




(From textilecentermn.org) – We are pleased to announce great news for the future of Textile Center. After an extensive examination of what qualities the organizations needs for its next Executive Director, and a national search, Textile Center has named Karl Reichert to the position.

This exceptional new leader has a track record leading arts organizations, with experience building great programing, and a history of making strong connections to individuals, funders and other arts directors across Minnesota.

Karl served as the Director of the Capri Theater for Plymouth Christian Youth Center for nearly eight years, where he created, shaped, and funded a myriad of programs that have elevated music and theater performance and education in culturally diverse and economically challenged North Minneapolis. While there, he led the redevelopment of the Capri Theater from an under-utilized movie house into a flourishing, first-rate performing arts venue, creating a sustainable impact on economic and neighborhood redevelopment in North Minneapolis.

Before the Capri, Karl worked as a marketing and public relations consultant for arts organizations, served as Fundraising Director for R.T. Rybak’s 2001 mayoral campaign, and was the Director of Public Affairs at the Minnesota Orchestral Association (1992 to 2000).

The Search Committee, comprised of members of the Textile Center Board of Directors and several textile guilds, was impressed with Reichert’s senior arts executive experience, and decades of success in developing and promoting the arts in the Twin Cities. A deeply committed and talented community leader, Karl is enthusiastic about leading Textile Center into its third decade of being a vibrant, catalytic hub for fiber art. He is also a knitter!

“I’m honored to have been appointed Textile Center’s new executive director,” Karl says, “and I’m looking forward to diving into the world of fiber arts. As Minnesotans, we are blessed to have an incomparable arts scene, and Textile Center’s national profile is the result of more two decades committed to celebrating and supporting fiber art in our region. Thanks to its dedicated board, staff and community of artists, guilds and enthusiasts, Textile Center has a very exciting future ahead of it. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to lead this important arts organization forward.”

Karl will assume the post on November 17, and there will be numerous opportunities for the community to meet him. Join us at Textile Center for the Holiday Gallery Shop’s Carter Smith artist trunk show on November 15; Karl will be in attendance from 1 – 4 pm.
