Crawford Exits Lincoln Center

In June, Bruce Crawford will step down as chairman of NYC’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, which is undergoing a $1.5 billion redevelopment.

Crawford, 75, took over as chairman from Beverly Sills in 2002.

“I think the time is right, for Lincoln Center and for me,” he told The New York Times. “The biggest job at Lincoln Center these days is redevelopment. And redevelopment will be in good place by the time I go.”

A committee has launched a search for his successor.
