James Cuno is heading west. The president and director of the Art Institute of Chicago has been named president and CEO of the J. Paul Getty Trust, which encompasses the Getty Conservation Institute, the Getty Foundation, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Getty Research Institute, and operates both the Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Getty Villa in Malibu. “The Getty needs a leader with an understanding of all aspects of the visual arts, who is known and respected around the world for intellectual curiosity and achievement,” said Mark S. Siegel, chair of the Getty’s Board of Trustees, in a statement announcing Cuno’s appointment. “But the Getty also needs an experienced executive who has the managerial and strategic skills needed to lead a complex organization.” Done and done. Cuno, who presided over the 2009 opening of the Art Institute of Chicago’s glorious new Renzo Piano-designed wing, previously served as director of London’s Courtauld Institute of Art, the Harvard University Art Museums, Dartmouth’s Hood Museum of Art, and the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts at UCLA. At the Getty, he will take over from Deborah Marrow, who has been serving as interim president and CEO since the untimely death of James M. Wood. Cuno will move to L.A. this summer and start work on August 1. We suspect his trip (although originating in Chicago rather than New York) will look a lot like this:
