The Light Factory suspending operations

Contending with a 30 percent decline in funding over three years, The Light Factory Contemporary Museum of Photography and Film said Monday it is suspending operations while it searches for a new operating model.

“We just didn’t have the cash flow necessary to keep the operations going while we evaluate our options and determine a viable, sustainable solution,” Board Chairman Jeff Wise said in a statement. He said the group is discussing mergers and partnerships with other organizations.

Founded in 1972, The Light Factory, at Spirit Square, promotes photography, film and other light-based media.
