The Newark Museum Board of Trustees has announced that Steven Kern will be the museum’s new director and CEO. He is replacing Mary Sue Price, who retired last May after 20 years as director.

Mr. Kern has served as the executive director of the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse since 2008. He will start at the museum in February. His appointment comes after a six-month national search to find Ms. Price’s replacement.
