When Malcolm Rogers became director of Boston’s Museum of Fine Art five years ago he inherited a $4 million operating deficit. Last year the MFA had a $437,000 surplus. He helped the museum complete a $137 million capital campaign. Last year’s 1.7 million visitors set an attendance record, and membership has nearly doubled in five years. Even so, his detractors are legion: “his acquisitions, his exhibition policies, everything that has to do with art is a disaster.”  New York Times
