A former administrator will return to lead Arts Obispo, the San Luis Obispo County Arts Council, once more.
San Luis Obispo resident Barbara Radovich will head the nonprofit arts organization as interim executive director starting March 1. She replaces Jenna Hartzell, who steps down Feb. 27 to become director of customer service at the historic Cass House property in Cayucos.
Radovich, whose résumé includes stints as a sculptor, high school arts teacher and certified public accountant, previously served as Arts Obispo interim executive director for four months in 2012. Before that, she spent two years as the group’s Arts in Education coordinator, overseeing programs including Poetry Out Loud, a countywide poetry recitation competition.
Arts Obispo is accepting applications for the executive director position through Friday.
Festival Mozaic Executive Director Bettina Swigger, who is chairing the Arts Obispo hiring committee, said the organization hopes to hire a permanent replacement by April, with a start date of April 6.
