Beard Exits Bass Hall

Paul Beard, managing director of Bass Performance Hall, is leaving the Fort Worth, Texas, venue June 13th and will start his new position as managing director of the Pearl Brewery Complex in San Antonio July 14th.

Beard has been with Bass Hall since its opening 20 years ago, including as director for the last 15, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The Pearl Brewery Complex sits on 22 acres along San Antonio’s famed Riverwalk and recently completed its first phase of construction.

"He was a critical part of the team that built [Bass] Hall, and he’s done a fine job of working with other arts organizations and working with people critical to the hall," Bass Hall President/CEO Martin Bowen told the paper. "The good news is that at least we’ll be keeping him as part of the Texas arts community."
