LUBBOCK, Texas -

News release:

The Lubbock Cultural Arts Foundation (LCAF), which formed under the nonprofit known as Lubbock Experience, Inc., announced the first director for the foundation, Stacy Keith.

Her experience in the arts include fundraising, nonprofit management as well as consulting for nonprofits. The Lubbock Cultural Arts Foundation cultivates, connects, and champions the arts community in Lubbock.

The organization is focused on creating a thriving cultural community by serving as a resource for artists and collaborating with partners to grow and promote Lubbock as a destination for the arts.

As a part of this mission, Keith will work to help Lubbock obtain both a music and film friendly designation from the state of Texas. These designations will support local artists, bring in more artists to our community and stimulate our economy.

As the former first vice chancellor of advancement for the University of Arkansas Community College at Hope, Arkansas, Keith is familiar with starting something from the ground up.

“The Lubbock Cultural Arts Foundation fosters an arts community which facilitates creative collaborations, supports local art organizations, nurtures individual artists, and reinforces the validity of Lubbock’s art on a national stage,” said Keith. “Its role is to serve as the liaison for the arts and develop a collective approach to sharing Lubbock art in all its forms.”

Prior to assuming her role with the Lubbock Arts Foundation, Keith assisted with fundraising for the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences and the Tornado Memorial Gateway as well as writing grants for a variety of nonprofits.

“The Lubbock arts community will greatly benefit from the continued growth and development through collaboration with Stacy,” said John Osborne, CEO, and president of Visit Lubbock. “We look forward to the future enhancement of Lubbock’s cultural scene both for the artists and their craft.”

Keith received her Bachelor of Arts in English from Texas Christian University as well as a Master of Arts in Mass Communication from Texas Tech University.

Along with her passion for the arts, Keith’s family shares a love for culture. Her husband, Ray, is a self-proclaimed history buff, and her son, Paden, plays the electric guitar. Together, the family attends a range of shows from the Lubbock Symphony to the Cactus Theatre.
