Don Marshall is a native of New Orleans who began his professional career in the arts as the first Director of the Contemporary Arts Center in 1977. Under his leadership the center grew into one of the largest multi-disciplinary Alternative Arts Centers in the country. Marshall curated over 30 exhibitions at the C.A.C. during his tenure. One of his major projects during that time was the creation of the coordinated gallery openings that has been a trademark of the local arts scene and since duplicated throughout the country.
As Director of Le Petite Theatre, Marshall founded the Tennessee Williams Festival in conjunction with a group that was organizing a New Orleans Literary Festival. During that period, he brought together local artists and community activists to form both the New Orleans Film Festival and the Krewe du Vieux.
Moving to St. Tammany Parish in 1992, Marshall served as Executive Director of the St. Tammany Art Association. Working with a dedicated board of artists and community leaders, STAA established the annual coordinated art openings, Spring for Art and Fall for Art in addition to music and arts festivals, children’s theater and arts outreach programs in the schools.
As an educator, he has served as the Director of the Cultural Resource Management Program at Southeastern Louisiana University and Director of the Arts Administration Program at the University of New Orleans.
In 2004 Marshall became the Executive Director of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation. During his tenure with the Foundation, he has worked to expand programming that fulfills the mission of the organization to promote, perpetuate and support the music, arts and culture of Louisiana. Since Katrina, the Foundation has created new events to celebrate the rich music and cultural heritage of Louisiana and to promote tourism such as the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival, the Congo Square Rhythms Festival, the Tremé Creole Gumbo Festival and the Louisiana Cajun Zydeco Festival.
