BAKERSFIELD - The Bakersfield Museum of Art is looking for a new leader.
BMOA's Executive Director, John Lofgren, announced he will step down May 31.
Lofgren made the decision to step down for personal reasons.
“With regret I informed the executive committee in early April of my need to step down for personal reasons,” said Lofgren. “My resignation will be effective at the end of May, but in the meantime my work here continues. I will also be working with the board and staff to ensure a smooth transition.”
“John’s love for the arts and particularly the visual arts is contagious,” said BMOA Board Chairman, Joe Hay, of Lofgren. “We value the knowledge and enthusiasm he brings to our museum and the community. In the next couple months we look forward to continuing to work with him and moving forward on several key fronts. The executive committee and the board have developed a transition plan and we expect a smooth handoff later this year.”
Lofgren was hired to run the museum in February 2013.
The BMOA was originally founded in 1956.
