Mark A. Magleby, has been appointed as the new director of the Brigham Young University Museum of Art. Magleby will begin his new role Jan. 1, 2012.

Magleby will replace former director Campbell Gray, who earlier this year accepted a position as director of The University of Queensland Art Museum in Brisbane, Australia.

“I am grateful this day as I transition into the legacy of Campbell Gray and I appreciate greatly his dreams and ambitions for this institution – and the wonderful staff he left behind,” Magleby said. “Remarkably talented colleagues at the MOA create concrete exhibitions from the most ephemeral ideas. It is a great honor for me to collaborate with their excellence.”

The BYU Museum of Art is one of the largest and best-attended art museums in the Mountain West and offers a dynamic exhibition schedule that includes displays of its permanent collection, world-class traveling shows and thought-provoking exhibitions organized by museum curators.
