Fitts leaving Photographic Resource Center

Jim Fitts, the executive director of the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University, has resigned after three years leading the institution, according to an announcement from the PRC. This announcement comes on the heels of the departure of curator Leslie K. Brown, who left his summer to pursue a doctoral degree in art history at Boston University.

The PRC passes along this note from its board president Cathy England:
"Jim was a longtime board member and has served as Executive Director for three years. We are grateful to Jim for his dedication to the PRC, his great enthusiasm for photography, and his creative touch with so many of our projects. Under his leadership the PRC sponsored a master lecture series with world class photographers; produced a portfolio edition of 17 distinguished artists which has been acquired by collectors and museums; founded the Behind the Scenes series of special events for members; and continued and refined our Annual Benefit Auctions and Portfolio Review Weekends. We wish Jim much luck as he pursues other directions in his career."
In the meantime, the Photographic Resource Center is seeing an interim executive director.
