Roxana Velásquez Martínez del Campo has been named executive director of the San Diego Museum of Art, the museum’s board of trustees announced Friday. Velásquez, who will assume her new duties in the fall, is the director of the Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City and previously served as director for two of the city’s other national museums, the Museo Nacional de San Carlos and the Museo Nacional de Arte (MUNAL).
She succeeds Derrick R. Cartwright, who left to become executive director of the Seattle Art Museum last fall. Velásquez, 43, will be the first female executive director in the San Diego museum’s 84-year history.
