Dallas Museum of Art senior curator Dorothy Kosinski has a new job: She's now the director of the 86-year-old Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., the nation's first museum of modern art. And, notes The Washington Post this morning, the 12-year DMA veteran is only "the third official outside the Phillips family to lead the modern art facility" since its inception in 1921.

Kosinski, author of several DMA exhibit-related books published by Yale University Press, gets quite the playground: Notes the Phillips Collection's Web site, it's the home to Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party, "along with other outstanding Impressionist paintings by van Gogh, Monet, Degas and Cézanne." --Robert Wilonsky

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
