One-On-One With The MFA's Malcolm Rogers
In 1994, a relatively unknown Malcolm Austin Rogers was introduced as the new director of the Museum of Fine Arts. At the time, the MFA was strapped for cash and criticized for being insular and elitist. Malcolm told the Boston media that his first order of business was to “bring the museum out to meet its public.” Done that he most certainly has. This year, the MFA opened it’s airey new Art of the Americas Wing and is financially stable. Malcolm’s tenure hasn’t been without complaint, but few can dispute that over the past 16 years, he has restored a sense of relevance and vitality to the institution. He joins us.
