From the Director

March 8, 2023

Richard M. DeMartini and Fern Kaye Tessler, Chairman and President of the Whitney Museum of American Art, announced today that Adam D. Weinberg plans to step down as museum director at the end of his current contract, on October 31, 2023. This concludes some 30 years of high-level leadership positions at the Whitney, including the last 20 as the Alice Pratt Brown Director. 

Planning carefully for the transition, the Board of Trustees has confirmed that Scott Rothkopf, the Museum’s current Senior Deputy Director and Nancy and Steve Crown Family Chief Curator, will become the Alice Pratt Brown Director on November 1, 2023, following Mr. Weinberg’s departure.
