Olivia Dodd, Executive Director, Arts Council Napa Valley

Olivia Dodd, Executive Director, Arts Council Napa Valley

Since June 2012, Olivia has served as President & CEO of Arts Council Napa Valley, Napa County’s local arts agency. Olivia is a Bay Area native and has called the Napa Valley home since she was fifteen. She holds a BA from the University of Southern California in Cinematic Arts and Honors. She has since had a wide array of experiences in the arts working in creation, production and administration.

While studying abroad at the University of Edinburgh, Olivia was inspired by the diverse cultures throughout Europe to develop a strategy for growing Napa Valley’s own voice in arts and culture through young creators and grassroots community. This concept became Wandering Rose, an arts organization bridging community activism, cultural literacy and alternative artists. For this work, Olivia was honored as a Napa Valley Life “Annual Intriguing Napa Valley” and recipient of the North Bay Bohemian’s “Boho Award”.
