Dallas Museum of Art’s curator of contemporary art resigned
That's another resignation for the Dallas Arts District.
DALLAS The Dallas Arts District's management has had a rough time recently. Let's quickly recap the departures as of late: Yesterday, the music director of the Dallas Opera resigned. Last week, the not-yet-full-time president of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Bill Lively, resigned. In early April, the Dallas Museum of Art's director Bonnie Pitman resigned. And back in July, President and CEO of the AT&T Performing Arts Center Mark Nerenhausen resigned. And there were several others.
That's a lot of resignations in a few square blocks.
Today, the Dallas Museum of Art announced that Charles Wylie, curator of contemporary art, will step down.
According to a statement, Wylie served as the curator of contemporary art for 15 years. His last day is in early June. He will be a consultant for the DMA through the summer, and the museum will officially begin looking for a replacement "in the coming months."
"Given all this, my decision to step down was difficult, but after 15 years at the Dallas Museum of Art, and nearing 30 in the field, I am looking forward to having some time on my own and then deciding how and where to make my next contribution,” Wylie said in a statement. He organized 32 exhibitions during his time at the museum.
