Friis-Hansen to leave AMOA!

Dana Friis-Hansen, director of the Austin Museum of Art since 2002, is suddenly leaving the institution, with a decidedly cool send-off from museum board president Lynn Sherman, who said that “The museum has some great opportunities and so does Dana, and it’s a favorable situation for him and for us” in Jeanne Claire van Ryzin’s Austin arts blog. A few weeks ago the museum has scrapped plans to expand downtown and sold its lot. Jack Nokes has been hired as an interim executive director.
