CultureGrrl Has Clout!
I passed along to Lisa Dennison [the museum's director] your suggestion that curators' names should be prominently displayed with introductory wall texts; she completely agrees, and has instructed the staff appropriately! So there you go---a difference has already been made as a result of CultureGrrl.
Well done, Lisa!
Now it's time for the Association of Art Museum Curators to issue new guidelines. This would be a job for AAMC's just named third president, George Shackelford, chair of European art and curator of modern art at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
