New Director of Yale University Art Gallery to be Named
Yale President Richard C. Levin will announce the appointment of a new director for the Yale University Art Gallery at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 5, in the gallery’s Sculpture Hall, 1111 Chapel St.
Journalists are welcome to attend the event and meet the incoming director at that time.
The gallery holds more than 100,000 paintings and objects in its permanent collection, including Etruscan and Greek vases; pre-Columbian figurines; Chinese ceramics, bronzes and textiles; and paintings by Van Gogh, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Homer and Eakins. Founded in 1832 by a gift of 100 paintings from John Trumbull, it is the oldest university art museum in North America. Its holdings today span all periods from ancient to contemporary, and come from every region of the globe.
