Charles Altschul, a photographer and graphic designer who has been involved in arts education at Yale University, Cooper Union in New York and the Kodak Center for Creative Imaging in Camden, Maine, will oversee day-to-day operations of the workshops as the new executive director. Altschul will be working with a board of directors that includes world-renowned photographer Joyce Tenneson. "We are thrilled to have been able to come to an agreement that will allow these institutions to continue," Tenneson says. "They are such an important part of the local cultural community as well as the photographic community worldwide." The workshops bring more than 3,000 students to Rockport each year, contributing more than $1 million to the local economy.
