Howard Ellington, who served as executive director of the Wichita Center for the Arts for 16 years, is resigning that position, and the center is looking for a new director.

The center made the announcement in a news release on Thursday.

Ellington will now serve as the center’s director emeritus and also will take on a new job at the center as director of architecture programs and the Frank Lloyd Wright Study Center as part of an affiliation with the Allen-Lambe House Foundation, where he is also the executive director.

Becky S. Turner, the president of the center’s Board of Trustees, will serve as interim director for the 94-year-old center until a permanent replacement is found. The search will begin in June.
