Atheneum Director To Leave

Willard Holmes steps down as director of Connecticut’s Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. He’s been there since 2003 and is credited with bringing stability back to the institution. “When you are director, your job is to be the person with the overview. You live your life vicariously through the people working for you – the curators, the directors. I want to go back to being closer to the art.”
