Director of the Museum of Arts and Design Glenn Adamson Steps Down

Glenn Adamson, the Nanette L. Laitman director of the Museum of Arts and Design, is leaving his post. Adamson’s last day will be March 31, 2016.

Adamson was at the helm of many exhibitions, including “Wendell Castle Remastered” (which is up through February 28, 2016), and “Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft, and Design, Midcentury and Today” (which traveled to the National Museum of Women in the Arts and is up through February 28, 2016), among others. He is also responsible for “Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years,” which is slated to open in October of 2016, and “Studio Job: MAD HOUSE,” opening this March.

Chairman of the board of trustees Lewis Kruger states “Glenn has done a terrific job in leading MAD through a period of substantive institutional growth and in fostering the professionalism of our operations, and he has put a great team in place to carry forth his work. We are sorry to see him go and, on behalf of the trustees, staff, and audiences we serve, would like to thank him for all he has done for the museum.”

Managing director Robert Cundall will be the museum's interim director.
