Stephen Elsaesser became board president of the Deep Ellum Center for the Arts only a month ago. Now he's overseeing its closure.

For some of DECA's strongest supporters, it's going to be hard to say goodbye. Both Elsaesser and Vercruysse praised Blanton, who didn't return calls for comment. "Don is one of the heroes here," Vercruysse says. "The place never would have existed without him, and he was much more generous for a much longer time than he had to be. He also lost a lot more than anybody else."
