Three new senior staff postitions for Dallas Museum of Art
The Dallas Museum of Art has created three senior-level positions: the museum’s senior curator of European and American art, Olivier Meslay, is also taking up the role of associate director of curatorial affairs; Tamara Wootton-Booner, who most recently served as the museum’s chair of collections and exhibitions, becomes the associate director of collections and exhibitions; and a third position, the associate director of external affairs, has yet to be filled.
Just days before creating the new posts, the Dallas Museum of Art named Robert Stein as its new deputy director of the museum. Stein served as the deputy director for research, technology, and engagement at the Indianapolis Museum of Art since 2010. He joined the IMA in 2006 and is noted for leading the team that launched the multimedia arts website ArtBabble.org in 2009. Prior to his career in museums, Stein worked in the high performance computing industry. He takes over in Dallas on 19 April.
