New Director at BYU MOA

On October 21 Brigham Young University’s dean of the College of Fine Arts announced Mark Magleby as the Museum of Art’s new director. Dr Magleby will officially take over this position beginning January 1. Dr Magleby has been a faculty member in the Art History Department at BYU since 1997. His scholarship focuses on 18th century art and architecture, 20th century European art, and contemporary theory and criticism.

The addition of Dr Magleby is only one of the many changes BYU MOA has under went in the past year. Other changes occurred in the education, PR and design departments. Dr Magleby is a strong proponent of his staff remarking they “create concrete exhibitions from the most ephemeral ideas.” It will be interesting to see the imprint Dr Magleby will have on Utah’s art community. The CUAC extends our support to Dr. Magleby as he begins his position as the Director of BYU MOA.
