In a release Clark says he believes it’s time to move on and pursue other personal and career goals. 

Clark tells the Lexington Herald Leader his remaining challenge will be seeing the umbrella arts organization through another Campaign for the Arts fundraiser, which as of late has been bringing in more than a million dollars annually. 

Much of the money raised gets distributed to various arts groups around the city.

LexArts also manages the city-owned Downtown Arts Center on Main Street and ArtsPlace on North Mill Street.

Clark took over the job in 2002 following the retirement of Dee Fizdale.

Following his official departure from LexArts Clark says he plans to remain in Lexington and focus on bringing more public art to the city.
