It is always great when people we know are publicly recognized by the press and media outlets for their good work. That happened about two weeks when the NY Times did a piece on our friend and Friends of Materials for the Arts board member, Anelle Miller – the Executive Director of the Society of Illustrators – http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/21/arts/artsspecial/director-enlivens-new-yorks-society-of-illustrators.html?pagewanted=all

Anelle is a dynamo who has transformed the Society since taking over as Executive Director in 2007.  The Times piece thoroughly explains the history of the Society and Anelle’s work over the past six years.  What’s missing is the volunteer and community work that Anelle does with a number of organizations – Friends of Materials for the Arts and the High School of Art & Design (of which she is an alumni) to name just two.   It is hard to imagine how she finds time in her busy life to help other non-profits but she does and she does it with generosity and passion.  If you have never been to the Society of Illustrators, head over there and if you are lucky, you may just get to meet Anelle Miller and see for yourself the fabulous arts leader in action.
