A Note from the Director
October is a big month for the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. The beautiful new John and Joyce Caddell Sculpture Garden will be open to the public, and our new director begins her tenure here. The Garden represents years of hard work by a number of people in the Museum family, and it will let us offer a whole new array of programs and services. Come see it for yourself.
Our new director, Angie Dodson, began her career here as an education curator in the early 1990s. After twenty-three years working in Washington, D.C., she returns to Montgomery with a sterling record of achievement and references that glow with warmth and praise. All of us who met her in the search process are thrilled at the prospect of her leadership.
I would like to close by thanking Mayor Todd Strange, President Leslie Sanders, and the Museum Board for giving me the chance to serve as interim director for the last fourteen months. I have loved being part of the life of this wonderful institution. I now look forward to watching—and lending a hand when I can—as Angie leads the Museum into a new era of growth and of service to our community.
