A nationwide search for a curator...is underway, [museum project director Bob] Workman said. The curator would have to be a specialist in the museum's focus, American art, and have 10 years of art museum experience.
"Hiring a curator is a lot like hiring a dean or a department head at a university. It can be a very time-consuming process," Workman said.
Alice Walton, Sam Walton's daughter, announced plans for the museum in May after she purchased the famous painting Kindred Spirits by Asher B. Durand.
HOUSEKEEPING SIDEBAR: Out of sheer frustration with chasing away the cockroach-like critters (I'm talking about those filthy spambot commenters who destroy the pleasure of blogging for the rest of us and should be hounded out of the blogosphere), I've turned on the word verification tool for comments. You'll have to type in the secret code word you'll see to leave a comment now. I apologize for the inconvenience, but the vile spambots were really out of control. Please do let me know if making comments now is too bothersome this way though.
