Sun Valley Center for the Arts Executive Director Sally Boettger resigned today after eight years.
In a press release, Boettger said she will pursue other opportunities but stay on as a consultant during the transition over the coming months. The center will launch a national search for Boettgers replacement. Artistic director Kristin Poole and the current staff will absorb her duties in the interim.
The center is a world-class museum with exhibit spaces in Ketchum and Hailey. It also brings internationally renowned speakers, artists, musicians and more to the Wood River Valley that enhance its exhibit topics. In 2013 the center merged with Company of Fools, a theater company based in Hailey, to make it the largest arts organization in Idaho in terms of budget.
