GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — ArtPrize is looking for a new executive director after announcing the departure of Jori Bennett.
Bennett will leave her post in early December, according to ArtPrize founder and board chairman Rick DeVos.
In a message included in DeVos’ letter to sponsors, Bennett said she and her family are planning to move to the United Kingdom at the end of the year to be closer to relatives.
“Although I am excited to take on this new experience with my family, it is with a very heavy heart that I am leaving ArtPrize and this extraordinary community. My time with ArtPrize has been nothing short of pure excitement and joy,” she stated.
ArtPrize Artistic Director Kevin Buist and Business Operations Director Meg Vande Guchte will take over daily responsibilities while ArtPrize begins recruiting Bennett’s replacement.
