Lexington Arts and Cultural Council

Downtown Arts Center

The Lexington Arts and Cultural Council was established in 1972 to “promote excellence in and enjoyment of the arts in Central Kentucky.” This leadership organization for the local arts community has raised more than $12 million for arts groups and individual artists in the area.

James ClarkEarly in 2003, the LACC named James M. Clark as its new president and CEO. James came to Lexington from Dayton, OH, where he had served as president/CEO of Culture Works, an arts council similar to the LACC, since 1998. He had recently been recognized as one of the most influential people in the Dayton community by a local business publication, thanks largely to his long history of community involvement through local boards and groups.

Before the Dayton position, James managed a graduate-level program at the Pratt Institute in New York and was the executive director of the Public Arts Fund of New York City.

James is a graduate of the University of Southern California and received his master’s degree in public administration from New York University. His impressive career path also has included other positions of public service, as well as experience owning and managing a private art gallery in Los Angeles.
