Two appointments have been made at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters. The museum houses a large and encyclopedic collection of stained glass from all over the world, and The Cloisters, with its magnificent collection of art from medieval Europe, celebrated its 75th anniversary this year.
Peter Barnet, currently Michel David-Weill Curator in Charge of the department, will move into the newly created position of Senior Curator, and C. Griffith Mann, the Deputy Director and Chief Curator of the Cleveland Museum of Art, will become the Metropolitan Museum’s Michel David-Weill Curator in Charge of the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters. Both aim to work towards helping audiences to connect with and discover the exceptional treasures of the medieval collections. These changes will go into effect on September 1.
