The Pérez Art Museum has appointed three new deputy directors: Adrienne Chadwick in education; Melissa Cowley Wolf in development; and Christina Boomer Vazquez in marketing and public engagement.
Chadwick has worked at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Miami Children’s Museum, and the Young at Art Museum in Davie, Florida. She is coming to the Pérez from the Nova Southeastern University Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale, where she was the education manager. Wolf was most recently an executive director in the office of institutional advancement at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has also held development positions at the Parsons School of Design, the Noguchi Museum, and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture. Vasquez, an investigative journalist, received an Emmy for a consumer protection segment on Miami’s WPLG. She has received many awards for her journalism, including a regional Edward R. Murrow award; the USC Annenberg Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television, Political Journalism; and four additional regional Emmys.
Pérez director Franklin Sirmans said, “We’re proud to announce the appointment of these new directors. With decades of experience in some of the premiere institutions in the community and the nation, they will help the museum serve its public, whether through exhibitions, education, or general outreach—all necessary facets of a twenty-first-century museum.”
