The Clark Art Institute today announced the appointment of Lisa Saltzman to serve as the Starr Director of its Research and Academic Program (RAP). Saltzman is the chair of the Department of the History of Art at Bryn Mawr College and is the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Chair in the Humanities. She will lead the program’s international agenda of intellectual events and collaborations and will oversee the Clark’s residential Fellows program, all based on the Institute’s 140-acre campus. 
“Lisa Saltzman brings exceptional qualifications and tremendous energy to her new role as the leader of our Research and Academic Program, and I am confident that she will enhance RAP’s leadership in visual arts scholarship, engaging diverse voices and sparking global conversations that will broaden its influence,” said Olivier Meslay, Felda and Dena Hardymon Director of the Clark. “In addition to her extensive academic and administrative credentials, Lisa brings a deep knowledge of our program having spent a year here as the Oakley Fellow, during which time she forged wonderful working relationships with our staff and with the faculty of Williams College. We are delighted that she will lead the program into the future and look forward to welcoming her to the Clark in January 2018.” Read the full release here.
