The Nassau Country Museum of Art, in Roslyn, New York, announced today that its board of trustees has tapped Angela Susan Anton as its new president, taking the place of Clarence F. Michalis, who will become executive vice president.
Anton is publisher of Anton Community Newspapers and “serves on the Nassau County Film Advisory Board and is a member of the WLIW Committee of WNET.org board of trustees,” according to the museum’s news release.
In other NCMA news, on March the museum will open a show called “Out of the Vault: 25 Years of Collecting,” which takes a look at its holdings, including works by Marisol, Larry Rivers, and John James Audubon.
The NCMA is something of a hidden gem from the vantage point of New York City. Located on a nearly 150-acre stretch of woodland, just a 30-minute drive from Manhattan, the museum has a sculpture garden that sports major pieces by Richard Serra, Mark di Suvero, and Richard Nonas.
