Upon the retirement of long-time Director Chris Grannis, the Eastport Arts Center is pleased to announce the hire of a new Executive Director: Meg Colbert. Colbert writes: “For more than 25 years the Eastport Arts Center has provided the Downeast community with access to arts experiences that have enriched lives and broadened horizons. I am honored to be passed the mantle of Executive Director, and excited to join the EAC team to help facilitate their vision of providing an environment in the community where the arts can prosper.”

Colbert was born and raised in New York City, where she gained an early appreciation of the arts. Spending the majority of her career in the museum services and art logistics industry, she spent many years working in museums, galleries, and artist’s studios helping to facilitate the complex work of moving art and cultural objects for exhibitions.

In 2021, she and her husband purchased a home in Eastport, and in May of 2022 they moved up full time with their son, her parents, and various pets. With an educational background that includes art history and library and information science, she looks forward to supporting the EAC’s mission of expanding arts access as the Executive Director.
