Lynn Zelevansky, Director of the Carnegie Museum of Art, is leaving the museum after eight years. She talks about the great events under her watch during the past decade with artists Paul Thek, Helio Oticica and Ragnar Kjartansson. Lynn picks a favorite painting from the permanent collection, makes thoughtful comments on the sobering expenses of large arts organizations and the crowded arts field in Pittsburgh, suggests what it’s like to be a woman in an art world of mostly men and reveals why she is heading out of town having left the most beautiful office in the art world.   Along the way, Lynn Zelevansky mentions meeting her artist husband Paul at CMU, working as Curator and Head of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, MOMA in New York and much more.
