Arts Center Board Dissolves Itself

wnpv_arts_entertainmentThe nonprofit organization that managed the Lansdale Center for the Performing Arts has dissolved itself and terminated the contract of Executive Director Marja Kaisla. Board members of the North Penn Regional Council of the Arts took the action last week.  A news release from Lansdale Borough cites a budget deficit, lack of fundraising and lack of support for arts center programming.  Friday’s performance by the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia has been canceled.  The borough owns the building, and local officials will have to decide how to make it work as an arts and entertainment center.
