For the moment, "interim director" is Abby Hayhurst's new title, but she has a long involvement with local arts programs, including the Actors Guild Theatre.
Her biggest goal is to get the community more involved with the Arts Center as well as to maintain ties to other arts attractions.
"We have the Actors Guild on one side and the Art Center on the other," Hayhurst says. "We hope to have a lot of cooperation between the two groups."
Hayhurst was named to the post to replace Dennis Stewart, who resigned earlier this year.
