More Shifting at the Dayton Art Institute

More administrative movement at the Dayton Art Institute seems to reflect what I feared is a shift in its mission. The DAI chief curator, Dr. Will South has been named chief curator at the Columbia Museum of Art in South Carolina.

“It is exciting to join the Columbia Museum of Art where innovation and outreach are welcome, but also where traditional scholarship is respected. I look forward to being part of the team that continues the great work the Museum is known for, and to helping shape the CMA’s future under Karen’s leadership,” South said.

If you ever want to know where art and research lie in a museum’s mission, simply follow the curator.

South is set to begin at the Columbia Museum of Art in mid-October.
