Betsy Simon Cowan, Program & Engagement Director
Betsy Cowan has been employed in Jewish communal service and not for profit administration since 1986. With a varied background in fundraising, business management and operations, she has created and directed film and book festivals, indoor and outdoor sculpture and gallery exhibitions, literary, musical and theatrical presentations. Her husband’s active duty service necessitated moving often which gave her access to many opportunties in the arts in the South and West. Serving most recently as the JCC Arts & Culture Director in Tucson and San Antonio, it was her desire to bring the art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz to her community that led her to meet, and now join, the members of the board and staff of Art & Remembrance.
