Menil Loses Director

For the second time in three years, the Menil Collection has lost a director and named an interim chief to manage the museum and help find a replacement. The Menil board appointed James T. Demetrion, recently retired head of the Hirshhorn Museum, as temporary chief. Demetrion steps into the post vacated by Ned Rifkin—who, ironically, filled the post of Demetrion, his mentor, at the Washington, DC, museum.
