DMA Curator Gets Big Gig in DC

Categories: Arts
During the opening of Matisse: Painter as Sculptor, Dorothy Kosinski appeared on WRR-FM (101.1) to discuss assembling the exhibition.

Dallas Museum of Art senior curator Dorothy Kosinski has a new job: She's now the director of the 86-year-old Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., the nation's first museum of modern art. And, notes The Washington Post this morning, the 12-year DMA veteran is only "the third official outside the Phillips family to lead the modern art facility" since its inception in 1921.

Kosinski, author of several DMA exhibit-related books published by Yale University Press, gets quite the playground: Notes the Phillips Collection's Web site, it's the home to Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party, "along with other outstanding Impressionist paintings by van Gogh, Monet, Degas and Cézanne." --Robert Wilonsky
