Linda Steigleder, Director and CEO of Hancock Shaker Village

PITTSFIELD >> Linda Steigleder, president and CEO of Hancock Shaker Village, plans to step down in November after five years at the helm of the Route 20 museum.
During her tenure, Steigleder said Thursday that the museum "came out on the other side" of lean Great Recession years and is now "getting stronger, balancing our budget."
"Steigleder is a seasoned museum professional, passionate about Hancock Shaker Village and has helped strengthen earned and contributed income, diversify public-program offerings, and attract high-caliber talent to the Board of Trustees, staff and volunteer corps," Cain said.
Much of running a modern museum involves finding "innovative ways to survive financially," Steigleder said, and so went her work through the years.
According to Steigleder, though, the nonprofit's debt now totals less than $200,000.
"It's not onerous debt," Steigleder said. "I think some of our sister institutions in the Berkshires probably have more onerous debt."
She added, "We have a lot more work to do; we need more help. But it's not a place, I think, that has a mess on its hands."
Steigleder said she has taken a "spend what you raise" approach to keep budgets in check, but more needs to be done in the fundraising department.
"You can't quite keep up," she said. "That's the bear of it all. But we've done much better in the last five years."
Last year, the Dyson Foundation provided $100,000 to study a potential HSV-Berkshire Museum merger which never came to fruition. But, Steigleder said, it brought the organizations and their respective staffs closer together, and tightened up shared programming, marketing and exhibits.
Ultimately, the numbers simply didn't show significant savings to justify a potentially "painful" merger, Steigleder said.
"Some day if we want to revisit a deeper partnership, that's certainly a possibility, but it's not going to happen in the next few years," she said.
The museum's 14-member board has known of Steigleder's planned departure since the fall, and will have hired her replacement before she walks away. Prior to HSV, Steigleder managed the Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, N.Y., and the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, Conn. She said she doesn't plan to retire but is seeking more "flexibility."
Advising her successor, Steigleder advocated taking on future restoration projects in small batches and networking among potential donors.
"We need more help from major donors," Steigleder said.

Linda Steigleder, Executive Director Initiatives during Steigleder's tenure (beginning January 2008) have included construction of The Bascom's new six acre, six building campus, improvements to educational programs and exhibitions, and capital campaign fundraising. Steigleder brings credentials as an art historian, fund development professional, and historic site administrator. Growing up in Virginia her interests focused on landscape design, math and economics, but "one look at a Paul Cezanne painting at the National Gallery in Washington, DC, turned all that on end". Her art history master's and bachelor's degrees are from Syracuse University and The College of William and Mary. Her training includes studies with curators of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum. Prior to The Bascom, she was director and CEO of Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, CT, a 152-acre estate with a premier French Impressionist paintings collection and formal gardens and earlier she was assistant director of Storm King Art Center, America's premier outdoor sculpture museum.

"This village had its own cidery," Hancock CEO Linda Steigleder said.

"They had alcohol. They made alcohol. They sold alcohol. In fact, Shakers had an industry of any kind of food substances they could create," Steigleder emphasized.
Steigleder was quite clear.

"Every year we have a cause-within-the-cause that we also hope to raise money for, and this year the 'cause' is our building restoration," says Linda Steigleder, HSV president and CEO.
