MONTPELIER — The Center for Arts and Learning Board of Directors announced Phayvanh Luekhamhan will step into the role of executive director, overseeing the operation of the 22,000-square-foot arts facility located in Montpelier’s Barre Street District, seeking to create new resources for artists and cultural opportunities.

A practicing poet, Luekhamhan previously held roles of director of operations at LION Publishing, a nonprofit member-based organization focused on supporting digital news publishers, director of business development, finance and administration for the online publication, and executive director at Montpelier Alive. She and Rachel Senechal co-founded Poem City, a month-long, citywide celebration of poetry that has been adopted by three other Vermont communities. She also holds a certificate in nonprofit management from Marlboro College Graduate School.

Founded in 2012, CAL houses more than 25 member artists, writers, nonprofits and makers – along with founding members, the T.W. Wood Gallery and Museum and Monteverdi Music School.
