Max Hollein, Director and CEO, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco

A Look to 2017

SAN FRANCISCO—Perhaps the most newsworthy event for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in 2016 was the midyear appointment of Director and CEO Max Hollein, who came to San Francisco after 15 years in Frankfurt, where he led the Schirn Kunsthalle, the Städel Museum, and the Liebieghaus Sculpture Collection. After six months at the museums, Hollein has made great strides in building an exciting program for 2017 and beyond.
