Parker named Rose registrar

Kristin Parker is leaving her post at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston to become registrar at Brandeis University's Rose Art Museum, the Waltham, Massachusetts, school has announced.

Her hiring brings the museum's staff to two (the other staffer is Director of Museum Operations Roy Dawes), still down from the six or seven Rose employees before the school threatened to shutter the museum and sell off its collection in January 2009, and pushed out two staffers, including director Michael Rush, the following June.

Parker will fill the shoes of Collections Manager Valerie Wright, who left around the start of the year to become registrar at the planned West Virginia University art museum. Parker has "worked since 1998 at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum as archivist and records manager, collection manager, and manager of contemporary art and public programs," Brandeis Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Marty Wyngaarden Krauss announced to the school. She is expected to begin work at Brandeis on March 22.

A search committee is currently reviewing applicants for the position of education director at the Rose, the school reports.
