SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. The West Nebraska Arts Center’s Program Manager announces her departure.

Maria Lena Soto is leaving her post sometime in May after working there for three and a half years.

Lena Soto is ready for a new change, wants to do some traveling and lay her roots somewhere.

Lena Soto says her greatest accomplishments were helping with shows, talking with artists, growing as an artist herself, learning the business side to artwork and learning what it takes to run a gallery.

Her biggest challenges were working with other artists because they are all finicky including herself, procrastination and speaking on television and radio.

Lena Soto says she wants to thank any and every one that has supported not only her but the arts center.

“I just want to say thanks to everyone who has supported the arts center and comes in every time I am on television,” said Lena Soto. “They always come in or I get a phone call. Thank you to everyone that has been huge supporters and continue to come into the arts center.”
