The Harlem School of the Arts has named Eric G. Pryor its new president, replacing Yvette Campbell, who left the position in June.

Pryor comes from the Center for Arts Education, where he served as executive director since 2012. His 20-year career includes serving as executive director of the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation’s Center for Art and Culture and the New Jersey State Museum.
“We are incredibly excited to have such an accomplished leader assume the leadership of the Harlem School of the Arts, especially as we enter into our 50th year of serving the New York community,” said Charles J. Hamilton, Jr. Esq., chairman of the HSA board of directors.

In an interview with Amsterdam News, Pryor discussed his passion for arts education and his hopes for the future of Harlem School of the Arts. “What I find so rewarding is seeing young people have access to the arts,” said Pryor. “That’s been my passion, and we have to focus on how we can prepare our youth. I want to make this space a robust destination for all ages.”
