$500,000 Mellon Grant Funds New Conservator at DMA

Andrew W. Mellon

The Dallas Museum of Art has received  a half-million dollar grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to hire ex-Getty conservator Mark Leonard as its new Chief Conservator. Leonard who had left the Getty to pursue his own art, will be the first occupant of the DMA’s new conservation studio (after he directs its construction) when he starts work in July.
