Speaking of the goings-ons at the museums of famous artists, a sudden development at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh this week had lots of people in the industry abuzz. The Carnegie-affiliated museum has announced the unexpected departure of its director of the past fourteen years, Tom Sokolowski. Though Philadelphia Post-Gazette initially reported that it had been rumored that he might be leaving, all parties involved had stayed mum until earlier this week, when it was announced without explanation, again from either side. Was it another ugly Hope Alswang vs. RISD debacle? Or the mysterious and sudden exit of Bill White from the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum (which turned out to be all about finances and subpoenas)? Or just a graceful exit with all the reasons coming out in due time? Turns out it was all the latter and none of the former. According to the Post-Gazette a day after all that “What does it all mean?” speculation, it’s come out that Sokolowski simply decided that it was just time to step away and move on. Furthermore, they also provide some great detail on what he brought to the museum during his long tenure there. Phew.
