Edmund P. Pillsbury is appointed director

After the death of Richard F. Brown, the Kimbell’s board of directors appointed as new Museum director Dr. Edmund P. Pillsbury, who had directed the Yale Center for British Art for five years. Soon after his arrival, he simplified the gallery furnishings and began expanding education and exhibition programs, as well as public services.
