Bonnie Pitman, soon-to-be ex-director of the Dallas Museum of Art, has been recognized by the American Association of Museums with its Award For Distinguished Service to Museums for 2011. She will receive her award at the AAM Annual Meeting in Houston at the end of the month, just as she steps down as head of the DMA for health reasons. Her recent book Ignite the Power of Art: Advancing Visitor Engagement in Museums details some of the innovative approaches to museology she instituted in her 11 years at the museum as deputy and since 2008, director.
