The Morgan Library and Museum Appoints Jessica Ludwig as Deputy Director

The Morgan Library and Museum has announced that Jessica Ludwig has been named its new deputy director. Ludwig will be responsible for supporting the curatorial department, library, and research teams as well as organizing the Morgan’s exhibition program. She will take up the post on February 27.

Ludwig comes to the Morgan with more than ten years of experience as a museum professional. She worked for eight years at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York as a managing director and, more recently, as a project director of the collection center. During her tenure, she oversaw the BMW Guggenheim Lab. From 2012 to 2015, Ludwig was director of ClarkNEXT and design (and member of the leadership team) at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts.

Director Colin B. Bailey said, “The Morgan is currently experiencing some of the most successful years in its history and Jessica’s expertise will be a key asset as the institution looks to extend these gains.”
