11.14.17 "Scaffold" Statement

Due to the number of phone calls asking for a comment regarding the resignation of Olga Viso from the Walker Art Center, I will simply post the press announcement and this simple response:  I am not in a position to comment on confidential issues as the parties proceed through the mediation process.

Ronald P. Leith, the designated spokesperson for elders group that has been actively engaged in the mediation process has received a copy of the announcement below and is sharing this with Elders group.  I can also confirm that the next meeting between the elders and the Walker Art Center is currently scheduled for the end of November.  If given permission from both parties, I will post further updates here.
