Judith Dolkart Named Director of Addison Gallery of American Art; Drawing Center Appoints Executive Editor
Spring has—finally, allegedly—sprung in the land of polar vortices and cultural institutions are in the mood for hiring. The Addison Gallery of American Art, located on the Andover, Massachusetts campus of Phillips Academy, has found its new director in Judith Dolkart (pictured), who currently serves as deputy director of art and archival collections and chief curator at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. She’ll begin in her new role at Andover in July, succeeding Brian Allen, who last summer joined the New-York Historical Society as vice president and museum director.
Also making a move is New York-based arts writer and editor Margaret Sundell. The Drawing Center has appointed her to the post of executive editor of the Drawing Papers. Her duties will include “recruiting writers, commissioning essays, editing the Drawing Papers, and maintaining the highest standards for all published institutional texts,” according to a statement released yesterday by the Soho institution.
