After seven years Aaron Betsky is leaving as Director of the Cincinnati Art Museum. He says he will explore other academic and museum opportunities. "The museum now has the programming and staff in place, and the financial stability that will allow me to openly pursue my next position."

The museum says its Board will be setting up a search committee and Betsky will help pick his successor. Betsky, an architect, came to Cincinnati in 2006 from Rotterdam, where he was the Director of the Netherlands Architecture Institute.
