The Dallas Museum of Art announced today the appointment of Nicole R. Myers as The Lillian and James H. Clark Curator of Painting and Sculpture. She starts on Feb. 29 and will work under Olivier Meslay, the DMA’s Associate Director of Curatorial Affairs.

Myers comes to Dallas “from the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (NAMA) in Kansas City, MO, where she has worked since 2011 as Associate Curator of European Painting and Sculpture.” Myers will be in charge of the DMA’s Modern European collection, “including paintings and sculpture from 1800 to 1945.”

Myers specializes in 19th-century French painting. Her doctoral thesis was on the French master Courbet. Before her stint at NAMA, she was a curatorial researcher at The Met, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Saint Louis Art Museum.
