Our favorite reborn Nabisco factory has a new smart cookie. The Dia Art Foundation has appointed Susan Sayre Batton as managing director of Dia:Beacon (pictured), the seven-year-old art wonderland on the banks of New York’s Hudson River. Beginning September 1, Batton will supervise the operations and administration of the museum, including planning, fundraising, community relations, and the implementation of public programs and exhibitions. She will also work closely with senior staff across Dia’s locations, promoting Dia:Beacon’s role in fulfilling the institution’s mission of realizing artists’ visions. “This is a thrilling time to join Dia,” said Batton in a statement announcing the appointment. “I am particularly drawn to the vision of [Dia Art Foundation] director Philippe Vergne, as well as to the talented and dedicated staff who bring energy and enthusiasm to the institution.” Batton has more than 25 years of experience in the art world, most recently as project director for Modern Views, the knockout project to benefit Farnsworth House and the Glass House. She succeeds Steven Evans, who left Dia last month to become the executive director and curator of the Linda Pace Foundation in San Antonio.
