Something’s gone awry at the head of New York’s premier arts centre.
The last president resigned after being accused of sexual misconduct.
His successor, Debora L. Spar, appeared to be a brilliant choice. She has just resigned – a year into the job – saying she’d rather be back in academia, which is another way of saying she can’t take the heat in midtown Manhattan.
Here’s her statement yesterday:
‘Earlier this morning, I formally resigned my position as President and CEO of Lincoln Center. The advancement of the arts is a cause very close to my heart, both on a personal and professional level, but I feel compelled at this moment to refocus on other interests.’
And that’s it. Not another word.
Ms Spar used to work at Goldman Sachs. She is no pushover.
Does anyone know what really went down?
