As Levitt Foundation Executive Director, Sharon provides visionary leadership in fulfilling Levitt’s mission—creating social impact by partnering with communities to transform underused outdoor spaces into welcoming, inclusive destinations where the power of free, live music brings people together of all ages and backgrounds. Her passionate commitment to the arts as a vehicle for positive change in communities has guided the growth of Levitt programs nationwide, and development of long-term public/private partnerships and sustainability strategies for the Levitt network of venues and concert sites. In her role, Sharon serves as chief spokesperson traveling the country, including regional and national conferences across sectors, to share the social and economic impact of Levitt programs and creative placemaking through an inclusivity and equity lens. She also leads the Foundation’s contributions to the field, including research and field-building initiatives to advance arts investment strategies as key elements in creating equitable, healthy, and thriving communities.
