As Executive Director of Reeves-Reed Arboretum, Frank Juliano brings innovation and community building to all aspects of the Arboretum’s programming and operation. He spent 7 years overseeing the food and conference service at Wave Hill, a 28-acrea public garden and nonprofit cultural center with magnificent views of the Hudson River. During that time he also introduced a successful weekly summer concert series accessing eclectic talent from the NYC subway system. In 2001, Juliano was hired as the general manager of the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY, where he helped launch the center and build it into one of the most important cultural community fixtures in Westchester. In the fall of that same year, he was courted and hired by the Greenwich Arts Council, in Greenwich, CT. During his 7-year tenure as Executive Director of the GAC, the organization grew in program development by widening its cultural presentations to include not only a state-of-the art gallery space, but also a serious venue for concerts, theatrical performances, literary events, and dance recitals. Community outreach expanded as well to include many underserved populations with programs geared to students ([email protected]/Student Docent Program) , seniors, and people living with Alzheimer’s Disease (The Art of Remembering, and, monthly conference calls to homebound seniors discussing the current exhibitions at the GAC’s Bendheim Gallery). This cross-pollination of the arts and service helped build the GAC’s reputation as the premier local arts agency in coastal Fairfield County. Well known in visual art circles around the tri-state area, Juliano curates exhibitions at the Arboretum’s Wisner House, as well as for Hat Tavern and the grounds of the Grand Summit Hotel.
