St. Louis’s Laumeier Sculpture Park has tapped Lauren Ross to be its new executive director.
Ross takes on the role after serving as curator of Virginia Commonwealth University’s Institute for Contemporary Art in Richmond, prior to which she was curator and director of arts programs at the High Line.
Ross, who has contributed to ARTnews, will begin her work with Laumeier this August.
“I am thrilled to be leading Laumeier Sculpture Park, an institution with a 40-year history, into the next chapter of its existence,” Ross said in a news release. “With its impressive collection, stunning grounds, and wonderful facilities, Laumeier is uniquely positioned to explore the intersections between art, culture, nature, health, education, and public space. I look forward to exploring these possibilities in concert with artists, community partners, and visitors.”
