Barbara Sexton Smith “re-wired” while those around her retired. As President & CEO of the Fund for the Arts, Barbara turned the reins over to the next generation and became the Chief Liaison for the Compassionate Schools Project. As one of Louisville’s Connectors, Barbara helped raise more than $220 million whilst working with the Fund for the Arts, Metro United Way, and many others. Out of 59 United Art Funds in America, the Fund for the Arts was named the #1 United Art Fund in 2012 for most new dollars raised. Barbara was nominated for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award! She was appointed by Governor Beshear to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority Board of Directors, and by Mayors Armstrong, Abramson, and Fischer to serve on the Metro Louisville Air Pollution Control District Board of Directors. She also serves on the Board of Trustees for Kentucky School of Art, SouthArts, Muhammad Ali Center, Simmons College of Kentucky, FFTA Properties and the Hermitage Farm Charities Board.
