OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA.- Dr. Michael Anderson has been named Interim President & CEO at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Anderson, also director of curatorial affairs, curates the Museum Film program at OKCMOA, has curated important Museum exhibitions including “Our City, Our Collection,” “The Complete WPA Collection” and “From the Golden Age to the Moving Image” and coordinated several high-profile exhibitions at the Museum including “Fabergé: Jeweler to the Tsars” and “Matisse in His Time.”

“Thank you to Michael for stepping in as Interim President & CEO,” said Cynda Ottaway, OKCMOA board chair. “We are planning to begin a national search for a new President & CEO in the very near future. I have full confidence in Michael and the staff to maintain the programs of the Museum and provide an excellent visitor experience as we move through this transition process.”

Anderson said, “I am truly humbled by the confidence that the Board of Trustees has shown in me, and by the support I have received from my very talented colleagues. I am passionate about the Museum and the city, and am eager to do my small part in helping to guide OKCMOA during this period of transition.”

During his tenure at the Museum, Anderson has continued to develop the Museum Film program, scheduling the best in independent, foreign language and classic cinema. He has also lead the re-interpretation of OKCMOA’s permanent collection, culminating in this year’s reinstallation of the permanent collection titled “From the Golden Age to the Moving Image: The Changing Face of the Permanent Collection.”

Anderson earned his doctorate in History of Art and Film Studies at Yale University in 2013. Before attending Yale, Anderson earned a master’s degree in Cinema Studies from New York University and a bachelor’s degree in European Studies from Hillsdale College in Michigan. Anderson has been with the Museum since 2014.
