The Lubeznik Center for the Arts, one of Northwest Indiana's premier art museums, has named Lora Fosberg its new director of exhibitions.
She's a nationally renowned artist who's curated the Lubeznik's Sculptfusion outdoor sculpture lease program since 2016 and brought Michigan City the permanent outdoor sculptures "You Are Beautiful" by Matthew Hoffman, "The Barker Get Down" by Bernard Williams and "Steel is Real" by Nathan Pierce.
The School of the Art Institute graduate had exhibited her artwork all over the country, including in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, St. Louis, Miami, Salt Lake City, Santa Fe and Grand Rapids. She has done installations at several Chicago restaurants and the CH Distillery on Randolph Street.
Fosberg replaces Curator of Exhibition CarolAnn Brown, who's stepped down after 12 years to pursue independent artistic projects.
"I'm so grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of an arts organization that has had such a positive impact," Brown said. "It anchors the community and Region. I will remain an active volunteer and supporter in the future to the LCA."
Brown organized exhibits such as "Magical Realism" and "The Hunt, The Prey, The Spirit" during her tenure overseeing exhibit in the arts center at 101 W. Second St. No. 100, between downtown and the Michigan City lakefront.
"The board and staff will miss CarolAnn and wish her the best," Executive Director Janet Bloch said. "She has been instrumental in bringing wonderful exhibitions to Lubeznik Center and establishing the stellar reputation of our programs. Lora comes to us with a wealth of expertise and experience in the arts. She is well-versed in contemporary art and has strong management skills. Her energy, enthusiasm and humor are contagious and she has some amazing exhibitions planned for the future."
