The Sybil Harrington Director of the Phoenix Art Museum, James K. Ballinger, announced to the museum’s Board of Trustees and staff his intention to retire, and requested the Board initiate a search process to replace him.

Ballinger, who will celebrate his 40th anniversary with the museum in December and his 33rd year as director in February, said the timing of the announcement was to “ensure that the succession-planning process will be deliberate and seamless until the proper person is found, and that a smooth transition follows.”

Ballinger joined the museum in 1974 as curator of collections. He was named director in February of 1982.
