Jon Seydl Appointed Director of Curatorial Affairs at Worcester Art Museum

Jon Seydl has been named director of curatorial affairs at the Worcester Art Museum, reports Andrew Russeth of the New York Observer. Seydl, currently curator of European paintings and sculpture at the Cleveland Museum of Art, will assume his role in January. Said director Matthias Waschek: “We are excited for Jon to lead our talented, growing team of curators. While his Old Master focus is in keeping with one of the museum’s traditional strengths, his proven track record of working innovatively outside his field of specialization will be crucial to us as we work to better engage audiences with our own collection.”
