Hollywood Theatre Hires Former Walker Art Center Staff Member as New Public Programs Manager
Portland, Oregon – The Hollywood Theatre is proud to announce the hiring of new Public Programs Manager Lindsay Kaplan, newly relocated to Portland after five years at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. 

Born in Arizona and raised in South Dakota, Lindsay holds a BFA in photography from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.  Upon joining the Walker Art Center’s Education and Community Programs Department in 2010, she helped to organize and support the Walker’s educational tours and acclaimed community- and artist-driven public programs.  Her career highlights include working with artist Alison Knowles to stage her iconic performance, “Make a Salad,” and managing sound artist Chris Kallmyer’s residency, “Baseball Day to Day,” on Walker’s Open Field in 2014.  Lindsay also served as the lead programmer for “Pop Remix,” a series of free Thursday night events featuring an artist-led activity, a screening, a DJ, and a band inspired by the Walker’s exhibition International Pop in 2015. 

Now in her role as the Hollywood Theatre’s Public Programs Manager, Lindsay will utilize her wealth of knowledge and experience to engage new audiences through media-anchored, socially engaged, participatory works in the community, including screenings, talks, and symposia; coordinate artist-in-residence programs at various school and cultural sites; and cultivate a diverse network of media arts educators and advocates in order to facilitate resource sharing and broaden regional impact.  Lindsay enjoys adventuring, baking, skipping, and telling bad jokes and is thrilled to be doing all of these things in closer proximity to the ocean.  

To get in touch with Lindsay about her new role or partnership opportunities with Hollywood Theatre public programs, email her at lindsay@hollywoodtheatre.org.
