NEW YORK, NY.- The Morgan Library & Museum announced the appointment of Peggy Fogelman to the new position of Director of Collections. She will assume her responsibilities in September.

Ms. Fogelman has some twenty years of curatorial and senior management experience at museums across the United States, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Peabody Essex Museum in Massachusetts, and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. She was most recently Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Chairman of Education at the Metropolitan Museum.

A graduate of Johns Hopkins and Brown universities, Ms. Fogelman is a specialist in European sculpture and has published widely on art and its public impact. She is an authority on the interpretation of collections, exhibitions, and conservation initiatives, with a commitment to making art accessible to a broad audience.

In her new position at the Morgan, she will oversee the work of the museum’s curatorial and conservation departments, as well as Registration. Among her many duties will be administering the Morgan’s vibrant exhibition program, with a focus on adherence to the highest standards of scholarship and interpretation. In addition, she will oversee the growth of the collection, as well as the generation of new scholarship related to the museum’s world-renowned holdings of art, literature, and music.

“We are delighted that Peggy will be joining our senior management team,” said William M. Griswold, Director of the Morgan. “She brings outstanding curatorial and leadership skills to this institution, has an impressive track record of scholarship in her field, and is an acknowledged innovator in interpretive strategies. Her combination of talent and experience is extremely impressive, and I very much look forward to working with her.”

Notable among the exhibitions that Ms. Fogelman has organized are Adriaen de Vries, Imperial Sculptor, Foundry to Finish: Bronzecasting in the Studio of Adriaen de Vries, Rome on the Grand Tour and Zoopsia: New Works by Tim Hawkinson, all at the Getty Museum, as well as Robert Graham: Body of Work at the Fischer Gallery, University of Southern California. In addition, she coordinated the design and installation of new sculpture galleries at the Getty’s Brentwood site.

As Senior Project Specialist at the Getty, Ms. Fogelman played a crucial role in building the museum’s collection; planned symposia and managed interdepartmental exhibitions and projects; oversaw Nazi-era provenance research; and spearheaded partnerships with the Dresden State Museums and the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.

Since 2002 she has applied her curatorial and scholarly expertise to the field of museum education. At the Metropolitan Museum, Ms. Fogelman restructured the education department to enhance visitor engagement; established new initiatives of first-time artist residencies and artist-based programs; and secured funding for a number of key educational initiatives, including public programming related to Islamic art and culture. In addition, she has directed external collaborations with the New York City Department of Education, institutions of higher learning such as Columbia University and New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts, and community partnerships with the Fortune Society, International Rescue Committee, and other non-profit and visual arts organizations.

Ms. Fogelman has authored a long list of scholarly publications, and she has lectured widely on European sculpture, interpretive programming, and exhibition development.

“I am honored by this opportunity to lead the curatorial team at the Morgan Library & Museum and to apply my combined background to advancing the institution’s public mission,” Ms. Fogelman said, in accepting her new position. “Original works of art form the core of everything we do, as curators and educators, to engage our visitors and connect the past to contemporary experience. It’s been a privilege to guide the important work of education at the Met, and now I am excited to be involved again in the growth of collections and the development of meaningful exhibitions at an institution as prestigious as the Morgan.”
