Toledo Museum of Art announces Carlos Picón as Consulting Curator of Ancient Art
Picón has earned the reputation of being a consummate authority on classical and ancient art.

TOLEDO, OH.- The Toledo Museum of Art has appointed Carlos A. Picón as consulting curator of ancient art. Picón joins the Museum from the distinguished Colnaghi art gallery (founded in 1760) where he launched their ancient art practice in 2017.

“Carlos is best known for serving as the curator-in-charge of the Greek & Roman Art Department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for nearly three decades, prior to which he built the San Antonio Museum of Art’s ancient art collection into one of the finest in this country,” said Adam Levine, the Edward Drummond and Florence Scott Libbey director of the Toledo Museum of Art. “His contributions to the museum will help broaden the narrative of art history.”

Picón has earned the reputation of being a consummate authority on classical and ancient art. He is credited with acquiring iconic artworks for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and for being a prolific fundraiser for numerous galleries.

“The collection of classical antiquities at the Toledo Museum of Art – assembled over the years with great care and expertise – is distinguished by the extraordinary quality of its holdings,” stated Picón. “I am excited and honored to continue this tradition of curatorial excellence under the able directorship of Adam Levine, and to assist the museum in recontextualizing the narratives it presents using this splendid artistic legacy from the ancient world.”

A native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Picón holds a Bachelor of Arts in classical and Near Eastern archaeology from Bryn Mawr College and Haverford College, and a Master of Arts and doctorate from the University of Oxford, in classical archaeology.
