Staying in Dallas for a few minutes more, we continue to learn that maybe the Texas town is the new hot spot for all things cultural and forward-thinking, as it’s been announced that Jeffrey Grove, one of the star curators of the famous High Museum in Atlanta has decided to leave his post there and take over the roll of Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art. Responsible for making the High cool again (at least with contemporary art) after Renzo Piano had done his thing with expanding the museum, Grove will now be moving on to a place where he will likely be able to even further push his visions for what’s worth seeing in new art, what with his expanded “Senior” title. Also, after a rough year for the High, like most major museums, with cutback and layoffs, this has to be a welcomed change: “Even in a bad economy, Dallas’ larger museum scene and public and private contemporary art collecting remain active.”
