Lexington 2 begins search for leader of new performing arts center
Executive Director for Fine Arts Programming and Facility DevelopmentAPPLICATION DEADLINE: Open until filled
In December, Lexington School District Two broke ground on a $52 million performing arts center.Now, it's looking for someone to run it. The center will be on Platt Springs Road in Springdale and is scheduled to open in two years' time. Here's what the district superintendent said about it in December:
Lexington Two Superintendent Dr. Nicolas Wade told the crowd gathered for the ceremony that the “large, state-of-the-art venue will offer a space for performances, special events, and district-wide occasions, something many schools do not have.“ The center will include a two-level balcony with seating for roughly 1,550, as well as four meeting and event breakout spaces. Upgraded systems in stage lighting and sound, along with dressing rooms, set storage and backstage areas, will ensure that the center is outfitted for a range of opportunities in dance, music, theater and more.
“This facility, I believe, firmly states we are a district that is central, innovative, and attractive,” Dr. Wade added.
