The Beck Group proudly announces that Associate Ashley Hollon, AIA, graduated from Leadership Arts Institute, Class of 2022.

Hollon has been with Beck since 2014. She is based in its Dallas office and specializes in higher education. Her portfolio includes the award-winning Borregos Stadium for Tec de Monterrey University and the Dallas College Northlake Construction Sciences Building.

“Leadership Arts was a great experience and a fantastic way to know people in the North Texas arts community. The program teaches leadership skills necessary to be on a board and how arts and culture influence our local economy. As an architect and leader, I can use my talent and network to influence arts organizations, the community and big business positively,” said Hollon.

In addition to her leadership with the Leadership Arts Institute (LAI), Hollon serves as the Dallas lead for the Beck Foundation, which partners with organizations like Bonton Farms and Habitat for Humanity to eradicate homelessness.

About the Leadership Arts Institute

Founded in 1989, LAI is a vital program of the nonprofit Business Council for the Arts. Through a 9-month course, graduates of LAI gain expertise in board best practices, leadership skills, and the role of arts and culture in building a more equitable, educated, and healthy North Texas.

Graduating class members can be matched for service on regional nonprofit boards of directors. Alumni of Leadership Arts Institute form the backbone of our arts and business communities today and are each invited to join the official association of Leadership Arts Alumni.

Each class also selects a class practicum that positively impacts our social environment. The LAI Class of 2022 launched Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6) in North Texas and continues to collect intercept surveys at art venues throughout the area. AEP6 is conducted in partnership with regional cities and Americans for the Arts. It measures the positive economic impacts of nonprofit arts and culture organizations in such areas as employment and tourism.
