“I am thrilled to welcome Margi to the Amon Carter,” Walker says. “She is widely respected within the field of American art as a distinguished scholar and dynamic leader. She is acclaimed not only for organizing spectacular exhibitions but for the great vision and innovation she brought to the reinstallation of The Nelson-Atkins’ American collection.”
In accepting the position, Conrads says, “I’m so excited to join the Amon Carter at such an important moment in its history. It will be a privilege to work with the museum’s outstanding collections and impressive staff as the institution continues to expand its reach into the community and beyond. I am eager to get to know Fort Worth and its many great offerings.”
The strategic addition of this new position to the museum’s management team comes at a pivotal moment in its history and gives strong voice to a collection of American art that is recognized as one of the finest in the country.
