From a San Antonio Museum of Art press release:

Anna Stothart, Brown Foundation Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, has announced that she is taking a newly created position as a Director at Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York City. Stothart joined the Museum in 2015, and since then has expanded the contemporary art program at the Museum through presenting two traveling exhibitions—28 Chinese and Corita Kent and the Language of Pop—and with the recent re-installation of the contemporary galleries.

“Anna has fostered relationships with the art community, installed two exhibitions, and brought new exciting acquisitions into the collection, including two important works by emerging artists— the mixed media loveseat (2015) by Sarah Cain and the abstract painting Open Reverse Bottom (Dots) (2015) by Matt Connors,” said Katie Luber, the Kelso Director. “She has left her mark and helped the Museum in its evolution to be a world-class Museum. We will miss her, but we wish her well in this next step in her career.”

Stothart’s responsibilities at Lehmann Maupin will include overseeing and generating written content and programming for the gallery. She will focus on museum and major collector acquisitions. “It is with sadness that I leave San Antonio. I leave behind great friends and colleagues, a welcoming art community, and a wonderful museum. This was an incredible opportunity that I couldn’t pass up,” said Stothart. “I look forward to furthering my connection to San Antonio through the Museum, and the city’s collectors and artists.”
