The Aspen Art Museum in Colorado has found a new senior curator: Max Weintraub, who most recently served as director and chief curator of the art galleries at Indiana University’s Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis.
Weintraub has previously worked in the curatorial and educational departments of the Denver Art Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. He has also taught art history at Hunter College in New York.
Some of his curatorial credits include “Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley: The Minotaur Trilogy” (2018), “Kenneth Tyler: The Art of Collaboration” (2018), and “Cynthia Daignault: Light Atlas” (2017), all of which were staged at the Herron School.
Weintraub said in a statement, “Through its dynamic exhibition programming and outstanding work with schools, the AAM is at the forefront of many of the urgent and transformative conversations of our time. I am thrilled and honored to be joining in the effort.”
Heidi Zuckerman, director of Aspen Art Museum, added, “[Weintraub’s] impressive, extensive past experiences assure that we will continue to provide programming that is both responsive to the global dialogue in which we are engaged, and relevant to the diversity of audiences we welcome throughout each year.”
