Executive Director of Museum of the Moving Image to Retire

December 1, 2010 - Rochelle Slovin, executive director of the Museum of the Moving Image, has announced that she will retire in February 2011. Slovin has been the director of the not-for-profit Astoria Motion Picture and Television Foundation since January 1981, and proposed creating the Museum not long after her appointment. The board of the Museum has voted to name Carl Goodman, previously senior deputy director of the Museum, its new director designate.

The Museum of the Moving Image is the only institution in the US that explores screen culture comprehensively. Its exhibits include topics that range from the 19th century days of early film to programs exploring contemporary technology and projects. It has been closed for construction and is slated to complete its renovation on January 15, 2011. Slovin planned and managed the $67 million project, which will double the size of the Museum and change its physical presence as well as its program capabilities.

In 1992, Ms. Slovin received the City of New York Mayor’s Award of Honor for Arts and Culture, and she was honored by the Metropolitan Historic Structures Association in 1993. In 2002, Ms. Slovin and the Museum were honored by Governor George Pataki with the State of New York Governor’s Arts Award.
