SANTA FE, N.M. — A former director of a contemporary art museum in Santa Barbara, Calif., will take the reins at Santa Fe’s Center for Contemporary Arts.
The appointment of Meg Linton as executive director and chief curator at CCA was announced Thursday. She already has begun consulting with CCA from her Arizona and California homes, and will take over as soon as her move to Santa Fe is finished, according to a news release.
Linton most recently was a consultant for strategic planning and special projects at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. Before that, she spent five years as executive director at what is now the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara.
In the news release, CCA Board President John C. Bienvenu praised Linton’s track record of effective management, community outreach and collaboration. “Her strong skills and deep passion for the visual arts will help propel the Center for Contemporary Arts to a new level of growth and esteem…,” he said.
