UVA Arts Vice Provost to Step Down in January

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia's first vice provost for the arts will step down in January.

Elizabeth Hutton Turner has served in the position since 2007 when it was created. Her 5-year term ends in January.

The university said Thursday that a search for Turner's successor began this week.

Turner also is a professor of modern art at UVA. The university says she will take a 2-year leave in January to work with the Terra Foundation for American Art, where she will serve as vice president for collections and curatorial affairs.
