New assistant deputy director at Clark

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, has named Thomas Loughman to its newly created position of assistant deputy director. He started working at the museum in mid October.

It’s notable to see a museum expanding staffing during these tough economic times. “As the Clark moves forward with the expansion of its programs and campus, we recognized a need for an additional staff person who could assist with planning issues and keep special initiatives moving forward,” a Clark spokeswoman explains.

Loughman is a 1995 graduate of the Clark/Williams College graduate program in art history. He has worked in the department of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; as visiting assistant professor at Pennsylvania State University; and from January 2004 to October 2008 as curator of European art and since January 2007 as assistant to the director for exhibitions at the Phoenix Art Museum.
