Quander is new Delta Arts leader
Quander previously served as a business and marketing consultant for the New York-based agency LMC Talent Boutique. She is now charged with steering Delta Arts – a nonprofit, multidisciplinary arts organization committed to stimulating interest in African-American arts, culture, history and humanities – into its 42nd year.
Among her goals are to grow the resources for the Center and expand its influence in the community.
A graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Quander studied African art, history and culture at the University of Ghana. Here, in the “City of the Arts,” she sees the Delta Arts Center as standing, “brilliantly and admirably to represent the African-American fine arts and culture experience amidst the evolution of a small town with a large passion for the arts.”
Quander has served non-profit organizations and has been an instructor at the New Freedom Theatre of Philadelphia and the Winston-Salem Children’s Theatre. She founded Promising Stars, her own Pittsburgh-based grassroots community arts initiative. An accomplished actress, her honors include a Hollywood NAACP Image Award and Boston IRNE Award nomination.
Quander is the former proprietor of O Baby Organics, a local Organic baby store. During her tenure as a small business owner, Skirt Magazine’s Premiere Winston-Salem Edition called Quander “a woman to watch.”
Quander lives in Winston-Salem with her husband, attorney James Quander, and their children.
The Delta Arts Center, 2611 New Walkertown Rd., will host a “Meet the New Executive Director Breakfast” on Friday, June 6 at 7:30 a.m.
