DeCordova Director Dennis Kois interview

From my interview with new DeCordova Museum Director Dennis Kois:
“The sculpture park is a resource that nobody in the immediate region has something quite like. We need to build more of our identity around sculpture and the sculpture park. I think in some ways it’s one of the few areas in the museum world left where a museum still could take a leadership position.”

Kois talks to New York magazine about a terracotta sculpture that recently fell off the wall at his former workplace, NYC’s Met:
“I am surprised nobody heard it, though — it would echo incredibly through the institution. But everyone always forgets how big the Met is! Like ten years ago a worker fell through a shaft and died and nobody knew where he went for several days.”
