Rose freezes curator search
The search for a new curator at Brandeis's Rose Art Museum has been frozen as the Waltham, Massachusetts, university seeks to reduce costs during the current international economic meltdown, according to Rose Director Michael Rush and a school spokesman. The curator position has been open since Raphaela Platow left the Rose for Cincinnati’s Contemporary Art Center in June 2007. As the museum has since then, the Rose is bringing in guest curators to help organize exhibits. Rush says curators for upcoming shows include Laura Hoptman, a senior curator at New York's New Museum, and freelance curator Michael Conner.
