The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) has promoted Jennifer Dunlop Fletcher from Assistant Curator of Architecture and Design to Department Head and Helen Hilton Raiser Associate Curator of Architecture and Design.
Dunlop Fletcher joined SFMOMA as assistant curator in November 2007 and has been serving as acting department head since May 2011. She succeeds Henry Urbach, who was curator of the department from 2006 until his departure in 2011.
"After a two-year international search, we found the brightest star under our own roof," said Ruth Berson, SFMOMA deputy museum director of curatorial affairs.
"Jennifer has more than grown into the position and we are thrilled that her strategic vision, curatorial expertise, and deep knowledge of the global design community will be guiding the department as the museum embarks on a transformative expansion project."
In her new role, Dunlop Fletcher will continue to organize major exhibitions, undertake scholarship, steward the collection, and engage actively with artists, designers, collectors, and curatorial colleagues around the world.
