Big RED and Shiny has learned that Libbie Shufro, the President and CEO of the Boston Center for the Arts, resigned this week. In mid-February, the BCA's newest Director of Development quit, after less than six months of employment. After Shufro resigned, that director returned.
Shufro resided in her post at the BCA for over six years and oversaw the construction and opening of the Beehive Restuarant and the Calderwood Pavillion, a 35‚000 square feet complex that added two important venues to the Boston theatre community. Both projects leveraged the BCA's hip location and space to bring in funding for the its typically non-traditional programming. She was also at the center of the controversy surrounding, former Mills Gallery curator, Laura Donaldson's departure last year, whom she had hired.
