New Director Lisa Melandri for the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis

Its been more than several months since Contemporary Art Museum St Louis’ director Paul Ha departed for Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s List Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, Mass.

The Museum’s new director is Lisa Melandri, where she served 11 years as deputy director at the Santa Monica Museum of Art.

As quoted in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch online site St Louis Today, “I want this to be a space where, ‘Not only I can get the information I want and see the debate, but I can also sit on the floor and have my glass of wine,’” said Melandri. “I want everyone to think of this place not as a rarefied, uninviting museum but a place that really is their living room.”
