Arts Council Oklahoma City is happy to announce Seth Lewis as the new Festival of the Arts Director. “We are excited to promote someone of Seth’s caliber into the Festival of the Arts Director position. His work with so many committees and events over the last 3 years, here at ACOKC, has definitely earned him the right to move into this coveted position,” says Peter Dolese, Executive Director.
Seth Lewis has been Projects Director for Arts Council OKC since September 2017, a position that oversees events such as Opening Night and Sunday Twilight Concert Series “I am honored to take on the role as Director of Festival of the Arts, an event that is known and loved by the Oklahoma City community and beyond,” says Lewis.
Lewis’s new leadership role will include navigating through the changes made to this year’s event. Festival of the Arts has moved from the last full week of April to June 22nd – 27th. “I’m up for the challenge with the new June dates and other improvements to ensure a safe, fun, and exciting Festival of the Arts,” says Lewis.
“It has been such a tumultuous year for us and the community,” says Dolese. “The pandemic resulted in the cancellation of last year’s Festival of the Arts. We are excited that someone with Seth’s leadership capabilities will be directing festival during this transition year.”
Festival of the Arts will take place June 20-27th at Bicentennial Park, Oklahoma City. For event updates, please visit artscouncilokc.com
