Holly Hotchner to leave Museum of Arts and Design
Holly Hotchner, the director of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), New York, is leaving down 16 years at the helm. She will leave on 30 April, and the former director of the Milwaukee Art Museum, David Gordon, will take over on an interim basis. Hotchner oversaw the move of the museum to Columbus Circle in 2008, a $110m project, an eclectic exhibition programme as well as the development of the Tiffany & Co. Foundation Jewelry Gallery, focusing on contemporary jewelry. The board of trustees will begin searching for a new director in February.
