About Hope Hooper

Hope Hooper joined the Arts Commission as the Momentum Festival Manager and has a background in fine arts, event planning, and marketing. Hope grew up in the Toledo area and has enjoyed participating in Arts Commission programs throughout her life as well as being a part of several group and individual exhibitions and volunteering for art organizations. She received a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design and an MBA in marketing from Tiffin University all while working in the hospitality industry. After graduating with her MBA, she moved to northern Arizona for several years where she worked as an arts and culture coordinator for a parks and recreation department.

In her spare time Hope enjoys working on her art, spending time with her family and pets, and growing her houseplant collection.
