Cityfolk

The board of the Dayton arts organization Cityfolk has voted to dissolve the group. The unanimous vote comes five months after Cityfolk canceled its 2013-2014 season and the annual summer music festival.

In a release, the board says Cityfolk's assets will be transferred to the University of Dayton. Its records and files are being donated to Wright State's Special Collections and Archives.

Our decision was a difficult one, but the right one," says Cityfolk President Matt Dunn.

The group was founded in 1980 to present ethnic and traditional folk arts.
