Director as Docent: Campana Interviews Tinterow in Culturemap

Culturemap’s Joseph Campana reports on his face-to-face tour of some highlights of the MFAH’s collection with newish director  Gary Tinterow. It’s one of the few interviews I’ve seen in print with the bespectacled  ex-Met curator, and he comes off as a curator still, rather than a corporate CEO (the persona  0f choice for museum directors these days). They discuss a Benin Head, an Olmec Baby, Brancusi, Cezanne, and Tinterow’s teddy bear, but nothing about the MFAH’s expansion plans, the epic upcoming War/Photography show, or the possibility of a Glassell BFA program.
