Kaywin Feldman‘s name was officially carved into the stone walls of the West Building in the National Gallery of Art, continuing the institutions tradition when changing new directors.
The National Gallery elected Feldman back in December 2018. Feldman becomes the Fifth director and First Woman to hold the title. She succeeds Earl A. Powell III Who held the position for the past 25 years before stepping down.
In a statement Feldman said "The National Gallery of Art is arguably America's greatest treasure. To be chosen to lead it into its next decades is a profound honor. As I prepare to take on the responsibility for this magnificent institution, I want to express my gratitude to the Trustees for putting their faith in me, and to Rusty Powell for the example of his years of enlightened stewardship. I am eager to work with the talented team at the Gallery in taking the institution to even greater heights."
History has been made and now Kaywin Feldman‘s name is permanently etched in stone. Feldman‘s name was carved by Christine Dunn, with the final tinting completed by Nick Benson.
