Gary Tinterow and Colin Bailey need training in how to be a museum director? I guess it’s so, if the Center for Curatorial Leadership says it’s so.

These eminent curators, from the Metropolitan Museum and the Frick Collection, respectively, are among the first 10 applicants chosen for such training by CCL, an organization co-founded by Agnes Gund, president emerita of the Museum of Modern Art, and Elizabeth Easton, former chair of the department of European painting at the Brooklyn Museum. (Doesn’t Easton want to a directorship, too?)

CCL also announced that it will collaborate with the Columbia University Business School to “deliver an MBA-level curriculum designed to equip curators with the necessary business skills to compete for museum director positions.”
