Genna Moe is the new executive director of the Wyly. Or Art Base. Whichever you want to call it, because the group is slowly rolling out their name change. No new logo yet. No changes to signage on the building. No new website. Yet. But one thing that isn’t changing is what Genna says is their ability to represent the whole valley.

The Wyly Community Art Center is going through some big changes.

Genna Moe is the Executive Director of the Wyly and just a few months into the job, she's excited to announce new programs, projects, and goals for the Basalt-based art center, including a name change.

With the support of the Wyly family, the Wyly Community Art Center will re-brand as The Art Base - alluding to its role as a base of operations for emerging artists in the Roaring Fork Valley. And, the main exhibitions space will be named the Charles J. Wyly Gallery at the Art Base.
