Richard Koshalek

Richard Koshalek, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles will be our guest speaker in February. Mr. Koshalek has served as curator at The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. He was Director of the Fort Worth Art Museum from 1972-1976. He became Director of the Hudson River Museum in New York, in 1976. There Mr. Koshalek became intrigued with the concept of forming an alliance between the innovative and the functional. As an example, he invited the artist Red Grooms to design and install the Museum’s bookstore. Mr. Koshalek’s remarks are entitled “Los Angeles and Temporary Contemporary”. The title relates to a project of the Museums in which warehouses in the Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles will be renovated by architect Frank Gehry. Artists will be asked to participate again. Mr. Koshalek is combining the innovative with the functional. His remarks promise to be exciting.
