Indianapolis Museum of Art Director and CEO Maxwell Anderson has been named the new director of the Dallas Museum of Art, the institution announced in a press release today.
The museum’s last director Bonnie Pitman retired this past June after announcing her intention to do so in April of this year. Mr. Anderson brings with him 20 years experience as a director and has served in that role at the IMA since 2006.
“I am honored to have been selected to serve as the next Director of the Dallas Museum of Art,” Maxwell Anderson said in the release. “The DMA has been distinguished by the great leadership of my predecessors and by outstanding trustees who understand the transformative power of art and have demonstrated a sense of civic responsibility that is unparalleled. I look forward working with the museum’s terrific professional staff and legendary patrons in enhancing the role the DMA plays in the lives of people in the region, nationally and internationally.”
