Leadership changes continue at Ohio’s cultural venues.
In the past year, 16 cultural institutions have had toreplace or prepare for the pending departure of their top executive, including at the Beck Center for the Arts,Cincinnati Art Museum, Cincinnati Ballet Center, Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, Cleveland Museum of Art,Cleveland Institute of Music, Contemporary Arts Center (Cincinnati), COSI Columbus, Dayton Art Institute, NationalUnderground Railroad Freedom Center, Taft Museum of Art, Stambaugh Auditorium, Reese–Peters House, ProFootball Hall of Fame, Westcott House and the Western Reserve Historical Society. This follows a national trenddocumented by CompassPoint’s 2001 and 2006 studies on non-profit leadership, both of which found that 75% ofnon-profit executive directors planned to leave their organizations within five years. The trend also appears to be areflection of the corporate world. The Oct. 30 issue of
Business Week 
reports 1,112 corporate chief executiveshave left their positions this year, including those at Ford Motor Company, Kraft Foods, Nike and RadioShack. Thetotal is on pace to exceed last year’s record 1,322 exits.
In an effort to promote Issue 18, the local cigarette tax on the November 7 ballot to fund the arts in GreaterCleveland and Cuyahoga County, 17 area arts and cultural organizations offered events at no cost orreduced rates on October 18.
The aim of the day’s performances was to show voters a sample of GreaterCleveland’s arts and culture in an effort to gain support for the ballot issue. Issue 18, which calls for a tax of 30cents per cigarette pack, is expected to raise more than $20 million annually for arts and cultural organizations if itpasses.
