Jodi Lundgren will serve as the interim director of the South Dakota Art Museum.

Jodi Lundgren, coordinator of exhibitions at the South Dakota Art Museum, will serve in the role of interim director. Lundgren will assume the role Dec. 22 following the retirement of Lynn Verschoor, the museum’s director for the past 20 years.

Lundgren joined the South Dakota Art Museum in 2013 after working at the Visual Arts Center in the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls for nearly nine years, including serving as curator before coming to Brookings.

In her current role, Lundgren is responsible for planning, coordinating and curating all of the exhibitions for the museum’s galleries. She manages and designs the exhibition schedule, spaces and content.

A national search to find a permanent replacement for Verschoor is underway. The search is being chaired by Pat Crawford, director of SDSU’s School of Design.
