Maggie Chapin, who has managed the Sherwood Center for the Arts since 2014, has announced she will step down from her position in the coming months. Chapin will relocate with her fiance to British Columbia.
During her time at the Sherwood Center for the Arts, Chapin oversaw the grand opening of the $4.4 million city-owned facility in spring 2015. She worked to establish community arts classes and programming, including the popular Family Matinee Series and breathed new life into the Sherwood Art Walk.
Chapin has worked closely with the Sherwood Cultural Arts Commission and helped create the Friends of the Sherwood Center for the Arts, which offers production assistance and scholarships.
Under Chapin’s direction, Sherwood was currently building a public art program after the successful completion of the Sherwood CommUnity Art Project last fall.
Chapin has previous worked for the Hillsboro Arts & Culture Council along with being a founder and leading actress at Bag&Baggage Productions.
