ALAC Welcomes a New Executive Director

The Board of Directors of Allens Lane Art Center is thrilled to introduce our new Executive Director, Vita Litvak, MFA! Vita, a resident of Germantown, brings many years of professional experience as an arts administrator, educator, and visual artist with deep connections to Philadelphia’s art community.

Most recently, Vita was the Director of Education at Fleisher Art Memorial, a community school of the visual arts, where she oversaw the design and implementation of adult and youth programs serving more than 5,000 students each year. At Fleisher, she also developed and led a creative aging initiative to serve Latinx older adults in South Philadelphia with funding from the National Guild for Community Arts Education and the PA Council for the Arts.

We look forward to introducing Vita in person to our ALAC students, friends, supporters, and the community!
