Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa Announces New Board Leadership
Leading the volunteer Board of Directors as the new President is Wendy Thomas, Executive Director of Leadership Tulsa. Thomas takes the Board of Directors leadership helm from Sharon King Davis, and brings a unique perspective to the post as a former Executive Director of the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa.
Elected officers include:
President – Wendy Thomas, Leadership Tulsa
Vice President for Resource Development – Michael Whelan, Whelan Law
Vice President for Programs – Joan Seay, Community Volunteer
Vice President for Buildings and Grounds – Chris Fling, Bear Peak Resources
Vice President for Membership – Christopher Payne, Tulsa Public Schools

The new officers will work in collaboration with Holly Becker, the newly announced Executive Director, who will begin her tenure in July. Becker and Thomas share the philosophy of a true team effort to further the goals and objectives of the organization. “What is not changing with this new leadership is the Council’s highest commitment to the health and wellbeing of arts, culture, and the humanities and that they should be accessible to all our citizens,” said Thomas. “The Council will continue to be the foremost organization that connects the arts with every other aspect of life, whether it be government, economic development, education, or social services.”
Thomas is eager to work with staff and fellow Board members to develop and implement strategic goals for the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, the Hardesty Arts Center, and Harwelden Mansion, which the Council owns and operates.
The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa is the champion for area arts and culture. The Hardesty Arts Center is located at 101 East Archer Street in the Brady Arts District.
