Klaudio Rodriguez named Executive Director of Bronx Museum of Art

Congratulations to Klaudio Rodriguez who was recently named Executive Director of the Bronx Museum of Art!  His achievement will help address “lack of representation in art institutions from the nation’s fastest-growing ethnic group, with Latinos holding only 3 percent of museum leadership. (Latinx is a gender-neutral term loosely defined as people of Latin American birth or descent who live primarily in the United States.)

The Bronx Museum uplifts the work of Black, Indigenous and artists of color, said Gonzalo Casals, commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. “It provides a social and civic anchor for residents of the South Bronx and serves as a cultural destination for people from across New York and beyond,” he said. “We look forward to working with the new leadership to make this important organization thrive.”
