Martin Wollesen Executive Director Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland Board member through January 2018
Martin Wollesen became executive cirector of the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in September 2013. In this role he provides innovative and strategic leadership for the Center's programmatic, educational and community outreach activities and contributes to the fundraising efforts of the organization. With collaboration as a core operating tenant, Wollesen works with university leadership and campus partners to advance the Center's mission, strengthen faculty and student relationships and cultivate new and existing community connections.
Wollesen came to the Clarice Smith Center from University of California at San Diego where he served dual roles. As artistic director for ArtPower!, Wollesen provided artistic vision and strategic direction to the organization, the university's premiere multi-presenting arts program in dance, music, spoken word and film. ArtPower! offers diverse artistic experiences that foster self-exploration with an emphasis on risk-taking and the unknown. These principles are familiar to Wollesen, who had an international upbringing. Residing in places like Singapore, the Philippines, Egypt, Portugal and Israel and witnessing street performance, cultural festivals and operas, for him the arts are linked to cultural identity.
As artistic director for ArtPower!, Wollesen created and implemented the Innovator-in-Residence Program that explores the intersections between the sciences and the arts; The Loft, a performance lounge and wine bar, the only venue of its kind on a college campus; Wonderland, an international festival of contemporary dance; and the Place Matters Project, the most comprehensive, interdisciplinary arts initiative in the university's history where non-performing arts students worked with Brooklyn-based dance ensemble Urban Bush Women to create movement pieces that enriched their connections to campus. He also inaugurated ArtPower! Film, a series of interactive film experiences that complement and extend the performing arts program.
At UC San Diego, Wollesen also served as the director of the University Events Office, overseeing arts and event programs that enhance student life and support community involvement with the university, including campus traditions such as New Student Convocation, All Grad Campus Celebration and the Sun God Festival. The University Events Office was also responsible for the UCSD Box Office, University Artist/Speaker Contract Management, and University Music Licensing.
Wollesen serves on the board of directors for the Association of Performing Arts Presenters and California Presenters. He previously served in board roles with the Western Arts Alliance and San Diego Performing Arts League. In 2012, he was awarded the Western Arts Alliance Vanguard Award for innovation in the arts for The Loft as UCSD. In 2011 he was named as San Diego Magazine's 50 People to Watch.?
