The Rosen Group (TRG) recently announced the establishment of a new Public Affairs Department. A work in progress for several years, the department will develop and coordinate new projects aimed at furthering TRG’s advocacy of the craft industry.
Alisha Vincent will serve as director of the new department, which will provide support services to exhibitors of the Buyers Market of American Craft (BMAC), implement outreach strategies for new artists, and develop an ambassador program that brings together experienced and emerging artists. Additionally, the department will coordinate lobbying initiatives to improve current indelible labeling laws and work with the National Park Service to include more American-made crafts in its stores.
The Rosen Group, a Baltimore-based arts marketing and publishing firm, produces the biannual BMAC, the world’s largest wholesale arts event, and publishes two magazines: NICHE, the exclusive trade publication for fine American craft retailers, and AmericanStyle, a consumer lifestyle magazine for collectors of American art.
