Hyde Collection name Charles A. Guerin as new Director

The Hyde Collection announced that Charles A. Guerin, former leader of two major university art museums and a former commissioner of Wyoming State parks and cultural resources, has been appointed director of the Museum.

Mr. Guerin, a Chicago native who most recently served as the Executive Director of the University of Arizona Museum of Art and a professor of art, was chosen in a national search. His appointment was unanimously approved by The Hyde Collection Board of Trustees. He will join the museum in early March.

The Hyde Collection is one of the Northeast’s preeminent small art museums with a distinguished collection of European and American art located at 161 Warren Street, Glens Falls, New York, about 50 miles north of Albany. Now celebrating its 50th year, The Hyde Collection spans centuries of art and includes works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Degas, Seurat, Picasso, Renoir, Homer, and Eakins that are in frequent demand among major museums in the U.S. and Europe. The Museum provides major changing exhibitions in its two galleries, as well as lectures, family activities, and school and outreach programming.
