The Houston Center for Photography (HCP) has promoted Theresa Marshall to Director of Operations. Marshall joined HCP in June of 2018 as the organization’s Administrative Manager.

“I am excited and eager to embrace my expanded role as Director of Operations at Houston Center for Photography,” Marshall writes in an email to Glasstire. “In the next year, I look forward to refining our visitor experience, both online and in-person, once we reopen our gallery and education spaces. As our society has undergone a tremendous awakening this year due to COVID-19 and the acknowledgement of social injustices highlighted by the BLM movement, I will focus on providing an environment that is sensitive to our community’s differences and abilities, while I also continue to oversee and manage our administrative and internal processes.”
States Ashlyn Davis, HCP’s Executive Director & Curator: “Over the past two years, Theresa has become an invaluable member of the HCP staff, overseeing the development and integration of new policies, procedures, and processes that support our mission as well as our values. I am excited to welcome her as part of our leadership team and look forward to working with her in this expanded capacity as HCP continues to work towards broad and diverse community engagement, artistic excellence, and promoting lens-based media in all its forms.”
