Marc Goldring joined WolfBrown in 1985 and ended his active consulting work in 2016. Since closing his practice, Marc has devoted much of his time to relearning the guitar and continuing his work with images, showing and selling his current images on his website and at galleries and shows in the Boston area. In addition, he has taken an apprenticeship in play overseen by his two-year old grandson, Desmond. He will remain through October of 2016 as Administrative Director of Spontaneous Celebrations, a community arts center in Jamaica Plain and producer of the Wake Up the Earth and the Jamaica Pond Lantern Parade community festivals, a position he has held for the past five years.
One of Marc's primary focuses during his thirty-one years with WolfBrown was community cultural planning, assisting both large urban and suburban areas and smaller communities to develop and sustain their cultural life and institutions. He worked on dozens of such projects both individually and as part of larger project teams. In addition to his cultural planning projects, Marc worked with individual organizations, developing strategic plans and conducting feasibility studies for museums, performing arts centers, and other cultural organizations across the nation.
A 1984 Fulbright Award-winning artist-craftsperson working with leather, Marc's work has been displayed in galleries and museums nationwide. He founded and directed an international organization of artists working in leather, curated exhibits of contemporary art and craft leather, and organized national and international conferences.
