Those who are concerned with such things know that this past week saw the announced retirement of the highly respected Phillippe de Montebello form the Metropolitan Museum of Art after many decades in the position. There was also news of Dorothy Kosinski currently senior curator at Dallas Museum of Art taking over as Director of the Phillips in Washington.
The Montebello departure in particular caused lots of ink to flow in a diverse array of publications.
This interview Tyler Green had with Dorothy Kosinski in his Modern Art Notes in Arts journal.com, and this thoughtful reponse deMontbello gave to Lee Rosenbaum aka Culturegrrl leads one to ask what our Museum and other local institutiions are doing. Marsden Hartley, yes, Peter Max-oh please.-David Sokolec
