As we start preparing to return to our in-person workspace, Arts Midwest is thrilled to welcome to the team our new Office Manager, Matthew Pawlowski!
Matthew will help Arts Midwest maintain a welcoming and productive workspace, and perform key administrative functions as a member of the Operations team. Prior to joining the Arts Midwest team, Matthew had a background in non-profit staff/office management and ran a community art exhibition space in the Mission District of San Francisco that focused on the work of emerging visual artists—he also worked as a picture framer over the years. Matthew originally hails from Southwest Michigan, but moved to the Twin Cities many years ago where he graduated from Macalester College and the University of Minnesota; he recently returned to Minnesota after many years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Outside of work, he currently spends time focusing on his art practice making queer-themed, conceptual needlework.
