Ross became the sixth director of Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in 1997. He came from the Miller Theatre at Columbia University in New York City, which under his direction was recognized by The New Yorker as "the city's hottest hotbed of innovative programming." Deeply committed to embracing the art of the past as well as the art of our time across disciplines, aesthetic sensibilities, and cultural legacies, he views the Center as a potent blending of classroom, laboratory, and Public Square. He was also recently appointed to the Illinois Humanities Council Board of Directors and was made the chair of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters Executive Board. This talk was recorded at TEDxUIUC 2010 (4/10/10), which was organized at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign by a group of students led by Cristian Mitreanu. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
