I look forward to contributing to its evolving mission and I am delighted to be selected by the MOCAD Board and the Search Committee.”

“The depth and breadth of Elysia Borowy-Reeder’s experience and passionate intelligence were among the many reasons we selected her for the position,” said Marsha Miro, President of the Board at MOCAD. “We believe that with her engaging personality, she will lead our young institution to the next stage, giving it stability and longevity without losing any of its edge.”

Borowy-Reeder will assume her post on April 8, 2013.
