In Memoriam and with Gratitude – Guy J. Alosa, Jr.

January 22, 2015
22 Jan 2015

Guy J. Alosa, Jr.

YorkArts President Emeritus, 1990-2001

Guy played an instrumental role during YorkArts’ infancy. By courageously communicating his passion and vision, he established the relationships with the first donors that would sustain YorkArts during the early growth years. In 1997, Guy’s business and finance experience was crucial in the financial and contractual discussions that led to the acquisition of 10 N. Beaver St., which was YorkArts’ first permanent home and remains its current location. His ability to read people and assess their potential led to the hiring of the first full time staff, among them the first executive director, Joanne Riley, who later went on to lead the Cultural Alliance of York County for more than 15 years. Guy also fostered the development of long lasting core programs, such as Art in the Parks.
