The current director of the National Gallery of Australia here in Canberra is either much better at silencing dissent than his predecessor Brian Kennedy, or doesn’t generate as much grumbling.

Either way long term Canberra watchers will be delighted to note that the Toledo Free Press of Ohio has a story on the former NGA director taking up the post of the Toledo Museum of Art.

“The former assistant director of the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin, and former director of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, will lead the Toledo Museum of Art beginning in September, museum officials announced June 30.

Brian P. Kennedy, 48, will leave his director position at Dartmouth College’s Hood Museum of Art to become Toledo Museum of Art’s ninth director after a nearly nine-month search by the Toledo Museum.”

Is there a reason he has to change jobs so often?
