The Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia, has announced that Carolyn Swan Needell, P.h.D., will be the new Carolyn and Richard Barry Curator of Glass, assuming the position on April 2, 2018. In September 2017, Chrysler Museum of Art’s previous curator, Diane Wright, announced her departure to take on the role of curator of glass at the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio. The Chrysler holds one of the largest glass art collections in the world with more than 10,000 objects spanning 3,000 years. The core of its collection comes from its namesake, Walter P. Chrysler, Jr., who donated thousands of objects from his private collection to the Museum. With Swan Needell’s 15 years of experience in the study of glass, she hopes to engage audiences of all interests and backgrounds.
