Columbia Museum of Art
Columbia, South Carolina
The Columbia Museum of Art (CMA) Board of Trustees has appointed Della Watkins as the next Executive Director, beginning Oct. 1, 2017. Della arrives at CMA from her position as Director of the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia. Previously, Della held successively more responsible positions in museum education over 16 years at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
“One of Della’s greatest strengths is her engagement in the community,” said CMA Search Committee Chair Earl Ellis. “The Columbia Museum of Art is a community asset, and we were seeking a proven leader who had demonstrated strengths in community engagement.”
Opportunity Resources is pleased to bring Della to CMA to succeed Karen Brosius, whom we placed 12 years ago and whose tenure was marked by the transformation of CMA into an award-winning, vibrant institution and a jewel in the cultural life of Columbia and the State of South Carolina.
