After more than a decade of championing the arts in Lexington, Lexarts President Jim Clark has announced he will leave his post.  Clark's resignation will be effective the end of June.  He says he is pleased with the pace of arts activities in the bluegrass.

“And I feel like I’ve taken it as far as I can go and there comes a point when new vision and leadership is needed and this is the right time to do that.”

Clark says there are a number of arts organizations poised for growth.  He cited as examples, the Living Arts and Sciences Center, the Art League, the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra with its North Limestone Works program.  And the Lexarts C-E-O says keeping support to arts groups during the recession speaks well for the community support.
