Sonnet Takahisa has been named the new deputy director of education at the Newark Museum, replacing Ted Lind, who retired last year.

Ms. Takahisa, a Brooklyn resident, was a founding co-director of the NYC Museum School from 1993 to 2003, and has created programs for the Seattle Art, the Brooklyn Museum and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.

“I am a firm believer in the Newark Museum as a community anchor, a place that serves the needs of our audiences and provides a dynamic environment for people to make connections with one another and with our collection and exhibits,” Ms. Takahisa said in a statement released to press.
