The Community Arts Program at Hanover College
in Regional Arts Partnership with the Indiana Arts Commission
Serving Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Jefferson, Scott, & Washington Counties
Region 12 Now Represented by Allen C. Platt III
The Region 12 Partnership welcomes Allen C. Platt III to his new role as our representative to the Indiana Arts Commission. He replaces Judy Hess, who has provided exemplary service over the past few years. Allen is counsel with the law firm Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs, LLP where he focuses on corporate law, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, contracts and litigation. He has a long commitment to leadership with many of the arts organizations in his community, including The Carnegie Center for Arts and History, Arts Council of Southern Indiana, and the Hayswood Theatre Group where he currently serves as President. He has been a lifelong participant in the arts, performing with the JCC Orchestra (Louisville) and as a frequent actor in community theatrical productions throughout Southern Indiana. He also strongly supports the Region 12 priority of keeping the arts in our schools, so all students receive the benefits that participation in the arts provides. The Community Arts Program at Hanover College thanks Allen for agreeing to serve as Commissioner and looks forward to working with him over the next few years.
