OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - The chief executive of the International Bluegrass Museum is stepping down though she will continue to run its annual music festival.

The museum says in a release Gabrielle Gray is ending a 12-year tenure as the museum’s creative leader. She was most recently the executive director.

Gray founded the ROMP music festival in 2004 and will continue as its executive producer and the museum’s primary grant writer.

Assistant director Carly Smith will assume the role interim director. The museum’s board, chaired by Yale University President Peter Salovey, will conduct a nationwide search for a new executive director.

The museum says Gray “constructed a strong foundation for future excellence at the museum,” including leaving an operating endowment exceeding $1 million.
