Monterey Museum of Art names Charlotte Eyerman as new Executive Director

Charlotte Eyerman has been named executive director of the Monterey Museum of Art, it was announced Thursday.

Eyerman emerged as the choice after a roughly eight-month long national search. She fills the role left vacant by E. Michael Whittington, who announced his resignation in January.

Eyerman, who lives in Los Angeles, currently serves as director of the French Regional American Museum Exchange (FRAME), a consortium of 26 major museums.

Eyerman previously did strategic and curatorial work for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, and has extensive curatorial and consultant  experience at several Southern California museums and galleries, including work with Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, the Pasadena Arts Council, and the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Eyerman is expected to move to the Monterey Peninsula sometime in October. She will be in attendance for the Aug. 25 closing ceremony of “Return to the Sea: Saltworks” by Motoi Yamamoto.
