CINDY GRESSER – Executive Director, The Smoki Museum
Cindy Gresser is the executive director of The Smoki Museum, and has been since April 2009. She was introduced to the museum in 2002 by her husband, who among other things, told her she could “make a difference” at the museum.
Those few words sparked her commitment to bringing the organization, with its rich history, into the present and the future. Gresser is proud to say that the museum now has indigenous people serving on its board of trustees and acting as advisers. They are also active members and volunteers at The Smoki Museum.
Gresser is passionate about the arts, and believes that arts can enrich every part of life and improve the lives of those less fortunate as well as those with unique abilities. She has worked with the Prescott Area Arts and Humanities Council for many years, and currently serves as the Art in Public Places Committee chair for the City of Prescott.
