MIA Curatorship Goes to Africanist

It seems that the number of museum anthropologists filling curatorships in major art museums continues to grow. As reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, "The Minneapolis Institute of Arts has hired Jan-Lodewijk Grootaers to head its department of African, Oceanic, and Native American Art starting June 9." Grootaers is a University of Chicago-trained anthropologist who has worked among the Zande of the Central African Republic. Find the story here.
