Employment Opportunity at the KHN Center

In Transition

The KHN Center is sad to announce the departure of their director Jenni Brant at the end of April. For the past four years, Jenni has lead the Center to new heights by increasing awareness of the program on a local and national level while strengthening the program's engagement with the surrounding community.

Jenni, her fiance, Eric and their furry, four-legged family plan to relocate to Decorah, Iowa. She is excited to be able to live closer to her family just a stone's throw from her native Wisconsin. This new chapter will also provide the opportunity to dedicate her time to her studio practice and engage with youth and adults in community art settings.

A note from Jenni: It is with a heavy heart that I depart from KHN and Nebraska City. Over the last four years, the Center's programs and this community have filled my life with inspiration, fellowship, and provided numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth. I have had the pleasure to meet hundreds of gifted and stimulating artists; these new friendships will be carried with me. The people I have been blessed to work and engage with at the Center and throughout the community will forever hold a dear place in my heart. Thank you to all of them and all of you for being a part of my time at KHN.
