FORT MYERS, Fla.- Art of the Olympians Museum has shut its doors indefinitely, and its CEO has resigned.
The signs hanging on the museum in Downtown Fort Myers coincides with the one posted on their website early this morning. They're calling it "time to reorganize and restructure..."
But that may not mean Art of the Olympians is calling it quits. They plan to continue their work through traveling exhibits, for both educational and outreach purposes.
We reached out to the museum's chief executive, Bob Beamon, for comment, but he has not returned our calls.
Back in march, Beamon, did tell us he did not forsee any changes to the museum, even with the lease to the city-owned building being up in June. He said to us back then, "I feel very confident that this 90 days we will come to some kind of agreement of where we will be."
And now more than 90 days later, the lease on the building is up along with signs saying the museum is closed.
According to our partners at the News-Press, Beamon said he’s sad he had to resign from his position because the board of directors decided last Wednesday to close the museum’s doors.
We spoke to a volunteer who says she was disappointed to hear the news today, but she knows this isnt the end for art of the olympians.
