Chris Siefert Appointed Deputy Director of Parrish Art Museum

On July 1, 2016, Chris Siefert will begin his new appointment as deputy director of the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York.

From 1996 to 1998, Seifert was the chair of the Louisiana State Sculpture Park committee, in addition to teaching sculpture at Louisiana State University. Seifert has held major administrative roles at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, including director of exhibits from 1998 to 2000, project manager from 2000 to 2005, and, finally, deputy director from 2007 to 2016. He has been the recipient of many prizes, such as the Times Project Organization Public Artwork Grant and the AIA Public Space Award.

“As the Museum approaches a new benchmark with our five-year anniversary in 2017, having Chris’s level of experience and expertise will be key not only to our daily operations, but also to our strategic planning and vision for the future,” said the Parrish Museum’s director, Terrie Sultan.
