It’s a busy day over at Ohio’s Columbus Museum of Art with not one, not two, but three curatorial staff announcements. First up: David Stark, previously director of administration for museum education at the Art Institute of Chicago, has been named chief curator of the museum, and will start March 1.
In addition, Drew Sawyer has been hired as associate curator of photography. He’s currently a curatorial fellow at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and a Ph.D. student at Columbia University, and is working on upcoming exhibitions with—and this is exciting news—Zoe Leonard and LaToya Ruby Frazier, among others.
Finally, Ann Dumas has been named adjunct curator of European art. She had previously been curator at large at the CMA.
“We’re delighted to welcome David and Drew to CMA and happy to announce that Ann has expanded her role with the museum,” Nannette V. Maciejunes, CMA’s executive director, said in a statement released to press.
If you’re over in the CMA’s neck of the woods before March, it currently has a show up called “In ___ We Trust: Art and Money,” which features work by Moyra Davey, Nari Ward, Ryan Gander, and quite a few more artists.
