Recent Leadership Changes Take Place At Scottsdale Arts
The Valley arts scene is getting increasingly competitive, with growth happening in Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa — to name just a few. Scottsdale has long been considered ahead of the pack, but recent leadership changes have put that more in doubt.
Neale Perl became CEO of Scottsdale Arts just a little over a year ago, but he resigned last month.
Now, Amy Nesbitt, director for Performing Arts, is leaving her position after only a couple of months on the job.
What explains the big changes? Is there something abstract going on in Scottsdale?
Arts and culture writer Lynn Trimble, a Phoenix New Times contributor, is with me to talk about it.
