Kaywin Feldman, former director of the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, turns up in a story in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal about the younger generation of directors who are expanding their museums' missions beyond being mere exhibition spaces. Think cocktail parties, film series, outreach to minorities, even an increased focus on sustainability.
"We live in a more global, multicultural society that cares about diversity and inclusivity," Ms. Feldman says. "We're thinking about how we increase our service to the community."Feldman, now the director of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, was elected recently as president of the Association of Art Museum Directors.
