The Board of Trustees have voted unanimously to name Dr. William M. Griswold, a distinguished scholar, renowned curator and experienced museum leader, its next director. Griswold’s confirmation comes at a unique time in the life of this institution, which recently completed a historic and comprehensive $350 million expansion project on time and under budget. As it approaches its 2016 centennial anniversary, the Cleveland Museum of Art is increasingly known for the quality and breadth of its collection and its historic role as a leading American museum.
