Walker gets new director

The Walker Art Center named 41-year-old Hirshhorn director Olga Viso as its new director, effective January 1. Don't know much about her, but from what I've read she's good: young, focused on multidisciplinary and global art, artist-centric, not necessarily revolutionary but fairly bold in her leadership of the Hirshhorn.
