CINCINNATI, OH.- Following a nationwide search, Elise Solomon has been named Director of Learning and Engagement at the Taft Museum of Art. She will begin her tenure on February 28.

Solomon will oversee the learning and engagement department staff that includes a large team of dedicated volunteer docents. She will be responsible for engaging new and existing audiences, increasing public involvement, and expanding the Taft’s role in the community.

Solomon comes to the Taft from the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), where she has worked in a variety of roles since 2010. She was the recipient of the prestigious Louisiana Art Educator Association’s “Art Museum Educator of the Year” award in 2017.

She has developed and implemented an array of programs at NOMA for audiences of all ages, including Baby Artsplay! Teen Squad, and Create Late art classes for adults.

Her accomplishments include managing a group of over 60 docents, and leading the development of the participatory Creative Concept Studio, a temporary installation that provides extended learning opportunities for visitors outside of the main exhibition gallery.

“We are thrilled that Elise Solomon will be joining the leadership team at the Taft Museum of Art,” said Deborah Emont Scott, Louise Taft Semple President/CEO. “She is a talented museum educator. I am eager for her to seek new ways to enhance our educational offerings and continue to engage with a diverse range of audiences at the Museum and in the community.”

According to Elise Solomon, “I am delighted to join a team that is passionate about its mission and the community. The Taft Museum of Art is uniquely positioned within the Cincinnati area to explore meaningful conversations through its permanent collection and exhibitions.”

Solomon earned a bachelor’s of science in management from Florida State University and a master’s in arts administration from the University of New Orleans.
