Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum of Art announced today that it has hired Catherine Evans to be its new chief curator. Ms. Evans comes to the Carnegie from Ohio’s Columbus Museum of Art, where she currently serves as curator of photography, and where she had previously served as chief curator.
“Catherine will be a great asset to the museum and the city in this effort,” the Carnegie’s director, Lynn Zelevansky, said in a statement. “Along with scholarly chops and extensive museum experience, she brings to the position of chief curator a background in innovative cross-departmental programming involving technology and viewer participation.”
Ms. Evans also previously worked as assistant curator in the Museum of Modern Art’s photography department. She holds a B.A. from art-history powerhouse Williams College.
