Starting in June, Kevin W. Tucker will be the chief curator of the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. In his new position, Tucker will oversee a rehang of the museum’s permanent collection set to go on view next year.
Tucker was previously the founding director of the Museum of the American Arts and Crafts Movement in St. Petersburg, Florida. Prior to that, from 2003 and 2015, Tucker had been a senior curator of decorative arts and design at the Dallas Museum of Art.
In a statement, Tucker said, “As a professional equally committed to community engagement and scholarly distinction, I look forward to working with [High director] Rand Suffolk and the museum’s exceptionally talented staff to lead new collaborative efforts to further both the reach and excellence of the High’s collections, exhibitions, and other curatorial endeavors.”
