The Source: Aste Takes Over At McNay

The McNay Art Museum is a gem for the city of San Antonio and over the last 25 years with the leadership of Bill Chiego that gem has grown ever more brighter.

But now Bill has retired and as of Monday a new director has taken over the modern art museum.

Rich Aste comes to San Antonio by way of the Brooklyn Museum, where he was Managing Curator of the Americas and Europe. 

What does he have planned for the future of the museum? What should we know about him and what should he know about San Antonio?
