The Cabin has named a new executive director after a national search, according to a press release sent out Feb. 19. Britt Udesen, the current director of education and humanities at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts in Ketchum, will take over at The Cabin in March.
Dede Ryan, The Cabin's former executive director, left at the end of October after a three-year term. She previously served on The Cabin's board in 2007 and 2008.
"She was originally from the corporate world and she went back to the corporate world," said Jocelyn Robertson, The Cabin's marketing coordinator.
Udesen was chosen by the board of directors from a handful of final candidates. She previously served at the Textile Center in Minneapolis, Minn., the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, Minn., and taught at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
