Today it was announced that, just two months after the center opened to the public, Sonntag has resigned.

In a sparsely worded release, Sonntag explained his decision this way:
I have the utmost respect for the leadership of Artspace and I’m confident
that The Cowles Center will continue to thrive. I came to Minnesota because
I believed in the mission of The Cowles Center, and I still do. But after
spending most of my professional life in New York, I don’t feel the Minnesota
culture is one I’m well suited for. It has been a struggle, but ultimately I
think this is the best decision for the organization.
Sonntag will remain at his post through the end of the year.
