David Carroll, Albany Institute, to address Roundtable 4/11



David Carroll, Executive Director of the Albany Institute of History and Art, will address the Albany Roundtable on Wednesday, April 11.

Albany Roundtable luncheon meetings are held at the National Register-listed University Club, 141 Washington Avenue at Dove Street in Albany, and are open to the public.

A Colorado native, Carroll succeeded Christine Miles as the head of one of America's oldest museums in September, 2011. He served most recently as executive director for the Western Museum of Mining and Industry in Colorado Springs, a position he held since 2005. While there, he worked with the staff and board to dramatically increase support and create a more vibrant institution that served the broader community. 

Before returning to his home state, Carroll served as the membership director at the Art Institute of Chicago. A graduate of Colorado State University and Indiana University Bloomington, Carroll has also worked at the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College in Chicago and the Indiana University Art Museum.

The cost for the luncheon is $15, which may be paid at the door. The University Club will serve lunch from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m., with the program commencing at 12:30. Reservations for the April 11 luncheon are required by Monday, April 9 and may be made by calling 518-431-1400 (the Albany Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce) or by sending an e-mail to albanyroundtable@yahoo.com.

Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
