The Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) board of directors announced yesterday the resignation of its executive director Carolyn Saxton, CFRE. Saxton's final day with LCA will be May 20, 2014. The LCA board of directors congratulates Saxton on her new position as President of the Legacy Foundation, a community foundation serving Lake County, IN, with nearly $50 million in assets.

Carolyn, a certified fundraising professional (CFRE), has been on staff at LCA since November 2005. During her eight and a half year tenure as executive director she has set LCA on an upward trajectory. She has strengthened the organization providing strategic direction to the board of directors and staff. She has brought the organization from its new beginnings at 101 W. 2nd Street to a pillar of the arts in Northwest Indiana.

LCA now reaches a total of 25,000 people annually, including visitors, those attending exhibitions, programs and events, as well as children and adults who receive direct experiences in art, music and dance - many of whom might not otherwise have a creative outlet.

Outgoing executive director Carolyn Saxton says "Working along side a team of artistic professionals has helped me grow professionally and creatively. I have a passion for the arts and specifically the LCA. That passion will not fade as I take on new responsibilities with the Legacy Foundation. I leave the organization in a strong position. A new leader will have a clear path to make it even stronger."
