American Folk Art Museum gets new director, Anne-Imelda Radice
New York’s American Folk Art Museum, which nearly shuttered last year due to a gaping deficit, has appointed Anne-Imelda Radice as its director. She has years of experience at federal agencies, having recently served as the director of the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services, under both the Bush and Obama administrations. Before that she was acting assistant chairman for programmes at the Humanities Endowment and as the chief of staff to the Secretary of the United States Department of Education and chief of the creative arts division of the United States Information Agency. Radice was also the first director of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the curator of the US Capitol and assistant curator at the National Gallery of Art, all in Washington, DC.
