Carnegie art museum names new chief curator

Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013, 10:21 a.m.
 

Catherine Evans has been appointed the new chief curator of the Carnegie Museum of Art in Oakland.

“I am thrilled to accept this position ... at a time when museums are reimagining their roles in the 21st century,” Evans said in a news release.

Evans comes to the museum from the Columbus Museum of Art, which she joined in 1996. She was curator of photography and also served as the chief curator. In 2001, she spearheaded the acquisition of the Photo League collection for which the museum is known nationally and internationally.

Lynn Zelevansky, the Henry J. Heinz II director of the museum, calls Evans “a great asset to the museum and the city.”

“Along with scholarly chops and extensive museum experience, she brings to the position of chief curator a background in innovative cross-departmental programming involving technology and viewer participation,” she said in the release.

Unlike past chief curators at the museum, Evans will not be responsible for one particular department or collection, but oversee all curatorial departments and functions.
