Charles Venable Resigns as Head of Indianapolis Museum of Art

After editing and then apologizing for an insensitive job posting that appeared on a recruiting site, Charles L. Venable, the president of Newfields, the 152-acre campus that is home to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, has resigned.

“We are ashamed of Newfields’ leadership and of ourselves,” the museum’s board of trustees and board of governors said in a statement on its website Wednesday, in which they said they had accepted Venable’s resignation. “We have ignored, excluded, and disappointed members of our community and staff.

“Black Then, Black Now, Black in the Middle …”

“When I set the name, I had no idea what the show was gonna be,” Wimms said. “I knew it couldn’t be based just on Black history. It had to be about the essence of Black culture, and then that will reflect on Black art and that will reflect Black history.”
