Elizabeth Chodos Named Director of Carnegie Mellon’s Miller Gallery

Carnegie Mellon University’s Regina Gouger Miller Gallery has appointed Elizabeth Chodos as director. Chodos joins CMU from the Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists’ Residency in Saugatuck, Michigan, where she has worked since 2010, most recently as executive and creative director.

“I believe deeply that art has the power to transform and that contemporary art offers society a vehicle to participate directly in social change,” Chodos said. “Miller Gallery has a history of blending rigorous exhibition practices with higher education, and it is an honor to join the gallery and continue this work.”

Previously, Chodos served as the director of programs as well as the executive director at Threewalls, the Chicago-based nonprofit organization dedicated to contemporary art. She also cofounded Hand in Glove, a national organization, which supports practitioners of alternative art spaces and projects, and helped launch Common Field, a national alliance of, and advocacy group for, artist-centered visual arts platforms and their producers.
