New Chief Curator for Museum of Arts and Design

Shannon Stratton’s going to be the new chief curator of the Museum of Arts and Design, according to the New York Times’ Robin Pogrebin.

She’s taking over the position held by Lowery Stokes Sims, who’s retiring after forty-three years working in the arts, including seven at the museum.

Stratton’s been the executive director of Threewalls—a contemporary arts nonprofit in Chicago she founded—for over a decade. Also the founding editor of PHONEBOOK, a guide to contemporary independent and artist-run projects, she helped begin the Common Field, a national alliance of small-scale visual arts platforms.
