A couple of clarifications needed in the article.

First, the Arts Center is over 50 years old. It officially opened its doors in May 1963, but was chartered by the City in 1960. That makes its age 58 years, not 50 as as the article states.

In those 58 years, there have actually been seven directors, not three. The first four were in fairly quick succession.
