Isaacson, Miller partners with arts and culture organizations whose missions celebrate creativity, innovation, education, public service, and audience engagement and share our commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion.

Our Reach

We support schools of arts and design, visual and performing arts organizations, museums, presenting organizations, botanical gardens, aquariums, zoos, and associations and funders that advance and support the arts.


Our Clients  

Our clients are deeply committed to serving their communities; their work fosters creative expression, discovery, activism, insight, and social change. They are challenged to fulfill complex and expanding missions with finite human, physical, and financial resources.  



We support our clients in their searches for leaders who will meet these challenges by drawing on our deep networks, our understanding of the skills and qualities that are necessary to lead, and our commitment to a meticulous, collaborative, and inclusive process.
