Blake Gopnik writes about the Hirshhorn’s new director Richard Koshalek in today’s Washington Post. Seems like he’s going to be an excellent fit. I especially liked this about him:

The reason he would want a lot of people in to see a show, Koshalek says, is “not because I want to have high attendance, or high numbers. It’s because I believe they deserve to have the opportunity to see the work of these artists, to encourage them to also be creative individuals in their own lives.”

Wowzers! A museum director who embraces a concept that lies at The Pink Line Project’s core: people seek out art experiences to inspire their own creativity (which is especially important in a relatively staid town like Washington).
