And Yet Another New Curator...

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center has hired Blake Milteer as curator of 19th and 21st Century American Art. Milteer comes from the Denver Art Museum, where he was assistant curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.

This is the first time the Fine Arts Center has had a full complement of curators since Scott Snyder left in, I think, 2002. And no, I don't have any idea why Milteer's job description doesn't include 20th Century American art. But it will make for an obvious question when I interview him.

Btw, Googling Milteer pulled up this Westword article by Michael Paglia, in which he describes impending layoffs at the Denver Art Museum. Paglia uses the word "shocking," and for once it's not hyperbole.
