Lesley Wellman, Curator of Education, has been named the next Director of the Museum Division of the National Art Education Association (NAEA), a nonprofit organization that represents and serves thousands of art educators, mostly in the United States but also from Canada, Mexico, and elsewhere. This is an extremely prestigious position in the realm of art education.
Wellman will serve a four-year term, beginning immediately, from spring 2007 to spring 2011. She notes,"I am very excited . . . both to give back to NAEA a portion of the incredible professional enrichment it has afforded me, and to represent the Hood in a prominent way in the national arena."
