CarolAnn Brown, Curator of Exhibitions at Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA), recently announced her resignation to pursue independent artistic projects. Ms. Brown served as LCA’s curator for 12 years. During her tenure she mounted exhibitions that explored intriguing themes such as relationships between humans and animals in “The Hunt, The Prey The Spirit” and “Magical Realism”.
“I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of an arts organization that has had such a positive impact. It anchors the community and region. I will remain an active volunteer and supporter in the future to the LCA,” states Brown.
LCA has announced that Lora Fosberg has been named the new Director of Exhibitions and has been working with Ms. Brown for the last two months to facilitate a smooth transition. Ms. Fosberg, a nationally renowned artist, lives in Michigan City and has been an active supporter of the arts in the community. Working with and for the Michigan City Redevelopment Commission and the Michigan City Public Art Committee (MAC), Fosberg is responsible for adding the artworks “You Are Beautiful” by Matthew Hoffman (a 6′ x 30′ outdoor sculpture), “The Barker Get Down” by Bernard Williams and “Steel is Real” by Nathan Pierce to the Michigan City Permanent Collection of outdoor sculpture. Lora has also curated “Sculptfusion”, MAC’s outdoor sculpture lease program, since 2016.
Janet Bloch, Executive Director of LCA states, “The board and staff will miss CarolAnn and wish her the best. She has been instrumental in bringing wonderful exhibitions to Lubeznik Center and establishing the stellar reputation of our programs. Lora comes to us with a wealth of expertise and experience in the arts. She is well versed in contemporary art and has strong management skills. Her energy, enthusiasm and humor are contagious and she has some amazing exhibitions planned for the future.”
