BOSTON (AP) — A Boston museum that was the site of the largest art heist in U.S. history has a new leader.
The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum announced Tuesday that Peggy Fogelman will take over as director in January. Fogelman succeeds Anne Hawley, who's stepping down after more than 25 years at the helm.
Fogelman has served as director of collections at New York's Morgan Library & Museum since 2013 and recently served as the Morgan's acting director.
She also has held posts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. She received her master of arts degree from Brown University.
The Gardner Museum was robbed in 1990. The $500 million in stolen artwork hasn't been recovered.
