Arts & Cultural Council leader to step down

Rochester Business Journal
December 18, 2013

Sarah Lentini will be stepping down as president and CEO of the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester at the end of the year, the organization's board announced Wednesday.

The board has appointed the council's current director of development and grant programs, David Semple, to serve as acting executive director while a replacement is sought. Lentini said she is pursuing a new professional opportunity.

“Sarah has done an outstanding job of leading the Arts & Cultural Council over the last 14 years,” said Grace Tillinghast, the organization's board chair, “developing and launching many exciting new initiatives and programs to serve the cultural community, including designing and building a new gallery and corporate facilities; creating a legal assistance program in partnership with area law firms; and founding Metropolitan magazine, the region’s premier publication devoted to arts and culture. She has brought the Council to such a high level of quality. I really admire what she has accomplished.”
