Zanesville Museum of Art's Board President, Richard Duncan, announced after a nationwide search, Laine B. Snyder has been named the museum's executive director. Duncan said a search committee was created to help fill the position.
"The board is extremely exited about it and I do want to compliment our staff at the museum," said Duncan. "They pulled together for a period of about 8 months without a director and they did just an excellent job. So I want to thank them."
Snyder helped create exhibits at several museums in Southwest Ohio and is a ceramic artist herself. She has served as the curator for exhibits at the Dayton Art Institute and at Miami University Art Museum. Snyder will start on May 5. Along with a new director, the art museum also has a few new exhibits on display including the annual K-12 coming up on April.
"It's just so neat to be able to see what the students do. Everything from a kindergartner, sometimes they need to explain what that is to some very very sophisticated works by some of the high school students."
