Alex Nyerges

Pollock's 1948 painting Number Fifteen - VMFAYesterday NPR had a really cool segment on Virginia Museum of Fine Arts' director Alex Nyerges where he managed to weave together a really interesting segment on the museum, a ghost, a Pollock, generous donors and a really strong path forward.

Details here.

I'll be visiting VMFA soon as I'll be in Richmond for a few days later this month and plan to write on the museum and Richmond galleries.

Down at the Factory this Thursday
