Mike Kinsella Is New Director of Annual Giving + Alumni Relations

Mike Kinsella joined the Cleveland Institute of Art staff in June 2011 as director of annual giving and alumni relations.

Mike Kinsella Is New Director of Annual Giving + Alumni Relations

Dear Alumni and Friends of CIA:

What a warm welcome I have already received from the creative people who make up this diverse CIA community. I look forward to meeting many more of you in the coming months, at Cinematheque films, exhibition openings, alumni and donor receptions, and other gatherings.

To give you a sense of my background, I came to CIA from the Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland where I was Development Manager for more than three years. Prior to that, I served in the development office of University Hospitals, following a 10-year stint at KeyBank where I was a relationship manager and advisor within the bank’s Nonprofit Endowment and Foundation Relations division.

Looking ahead, I am wide open to new ideas for re-connecting with alumni and offering meaningful events for friends. I’m particularly interested in using social media, especially Facebook, as a tool for keeping you informed of happenings at CIA and soliciting your ideas.

We are now laying the groundwork for what will be a CIA alumni association and, again, I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions as this takes shape. What sorts of events would you be most likely to attend? How can we help you reconnect with your former classmates?

On a personal note, I live in Cleveland Heights with my wife Audrey and our daughters Maura and Gwen. I’m active on the boards of Greater Cleveland Community Shares and FutureHeights, and in my spare time, I play bass in the folk-rock band, oldboy.

I can be reached at 216.421.7412 or mkinsella@cia.edu and my new office is in Gund 205. If you’re planning to visit our terrific Student Summer Show, stop in and say hello. I am both honored and thrilled to be part of the CIA team and I look forward to an exciting and dynamic future.

Warmly,
Mike Kinsella
