Meet an Ally: Erin Deters, Cincinnati

Tim is going to have to wait a bit longer for Erin to come back to NYC.

Two years ago, Erin Deters, set off to New York to start a career in fashion design but ran smack-dab into the Great Recession.  Last year, she came back to her hometown of Cincinnati, and became an Ally.

She was assigned to an arts non-profit, Clifton Cultural Arts Center… And CCAC Executive Director Ruth Dickey gave Deters a rare and wonderful opportunity in leadership: curating an art show.

Deters decided to base it on what she knew: the frustrations of the recession for artists.

“I felt it was in the air,” says Deters, 25. “It was in my struggle, my friends’ and fellow graduates’. It was on the news and everywhere I turned. I thought this would be a good outlet for people.”
