DiverseWorks Houston Names Executive Director Elizabeth Dunbar

DiverseWorks—non-profit art space in Houston—announces Elizabeth Dunbar as the new Executive Director, following William Betts, according to HoustonPress article yesterday. Formerly the head Curator at Austin’s Arthouse at the Jones Center, her position was eliminated last August.

Although controversy abounded at the time of Dunbar’s departure from the Arthouse surrounding various installations and performance-based work, HoustonPress reports that, “Syncing the visual and performative art worlds is a passion of Dunbar’s and something she’d like to make happen with more frequency at DiverseWorks.”

Further HoustonPress mentions Dunbar’s readiness to continue taking risks, and bringing “the visual and performing arts programming together in a more organized fashion and to really create a nexus between the two,” says Dunbar.
