CAC Director Jay Weigel Steps Down
by Brad Rhines
Last month, a handful of artists from St. Claude galleries pulled their work from the Spaces exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center to protest the practices of the CAC’s director, Jay Weigel. On Wednesday, Weigel announced his departure from the CAC, ending a tenure that began in 1996. While Weigel and the CAC made no mention of the opposition, the timing is certainly very interesting.
St. Claude Artists Pull Out of Contemporary Arts Center, Director Responds
While Spaces—a recent exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center highlighting the artists and galleries of St. Claude—may not completely capture the raucous spirit of the downtown art scene, a weekend protest by some of the artists involved in the show more clearly illustrates the divide between St. Claude Avenue and Julia Street.
