Nash Arts gets new director
Kimberlee Cianciola
Kimberlee Cianciola has taken over as Executive Director of Nash Arts.

Cianciola replaces former Director Maureen Kroncke, who announced her resignation in December.

Cianciola, a Massachusetts native, has lived in Rocky Mount since 2002. She said she has, in the past, attended events at Nash Arts and was intrigued with the former Baptist Church facility.

“I’m very taken with this old facility,” Cianciola said. “It’s gorgeous.”

Though only in her second week, Cianciola said she hopes to get out into the community and see what residents want most from Nash Arts.

“I want to reach out to people,” Cianciola said. “We’re open to knowing what they want.”

Cianciola said she also wants to remind people that Nash Arts is for anyone and everyone.

“I don’t think people know....this belongs to Nash County,” Cianciola said. “I just want to get people in here to enjoy it. It’s open to everyone.”

Cianciola said she has no plans of removing any existing programming but said she does want to try to get new artists in to perform. To do that, she said, support from the community is needed.

“I really want to get this thing going to the next level,” she said.

Cianciola’s background is in business management and risk insurance. She has worked under Tim Valentine when he served in Congress and has also worked for Senator A.B. Swindell.

“I think it’s ironic I would be here with that kind of history with the Valentine’s,” she said. “I’m very people oriented and customer service oriented.”

Cianciola said she also hopes to see Nash Arts see some improvements on the inside, including some painting and new floors but added that she wanted the facility to maintain its historical presence, both inside and out.

“It’s an old lady that needs a face lift,” Cianciola said of Nash Arts. “And, we’re going to give it to her.”
