  Robert L. Lynch

Robert L. Lynch is the president and CEO of Americans for the Arts, the national organization dedicated to advancing the arts and arts education in people’s lives, schools and communities.

Lynch was executive director of the National Assembly of Local Arts Agencies for 12 years, and managed the successful merger of that organization with the American Council for the Arts to form Americans for the Arts in 1996. In 2005, he oversaw the merger of the Arts and Business Council Inc. into Americans for the Arts. Also in 2005, he created the Americans for the Arts Action Fund and its connected political action committee to engage citizens in advocating for the arts and arts education to ensure arts-friendly public policies.

With more than 30 years of experience in the arts industry, Lynch is motivated by his personal mission to empower communities and leaders to advance arts and arts appreciation in society. Under his 24 years of leadership, the services and membership of Americans for the Arts has grown to more than 50 times its original size in 1985. He has personally reached audiences in 49 states and eight countries, ranging from Native American tribal gatherings to the U.S. armed forces in Europe and the president of the United States.

Lynch currently serves on the boards of the Craft Emergency Relief Fund, the Arts Extension Institute and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst College of Humanities and Fine Arts. He is a member of the executive committee for United Voices for Education and the advisory council of the National Museum for Children in the Arts. Lynch earned a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and plays the piano, mandolin and guitar. . . . short bio
