Adam Engle Elected to Chicago Arts Partnerships Board of Directors Chicago, Ill. – Dec 7, 2022 – Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education is pleased to announce the appointment of Adam Engle to the board of directors for a three-year term.

“I was drawn to CAPE’s mission because instead of replacing ‘art class,’ it builds on existing curricula in traditional subjects by incorporating music, visual arts, theater, and dance to help students learn in experiential ways, and taps into the range of intelligences and learning styles that students bring to the classroom,” says Adam Engle, new board member at CAPE.

Board President, Josh Nathan, says, “Adam’s non-profit experience, financial expertise and passion for arts and education put Adam in a unique position to contribute on many fronts.”

Amy Rasmussen adds, “With Adam’s election to the CAPE Board of Directors we are adding someone with significant non-profit governance and leadership experience. I am looking forward to collaborating with him and other board members as we work towards expanding CAPE’s reach while building equity for arts education in our community.”

“I hope that I can bring my professional experiences and skills and expertise I have developed over my life and career, as well as my past board service, to help guide CAPE to continued growth, programmatically and financially, well into the future,” says Adam.
